How to Make Monster Bookmarks: Free Embroidery Designs

I got the idea to digitize these monster bookmarks from Pinterest- the original pin is on our “Project Ideas” board. The bookmark I saw was made of paper, not fabric, so I decided to dive in and digitize my own version of this super cute concept, using BERNINA V6 Embroidery software.

Let me tell you a little secret before I give you the design for free: I am OBSESSED with digitizing “in-the-hoop” projects. I do them all the time. Keep a look out for more. If anyone ever tells you that digitizing software is a waste of money, they aren’t having nearly as much fun as I’m having!

Moving on…

Watch this video for full instructions.  Even if you don’t make the monster bookmarks right away, you’ll learn a few things!
