Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - finished bookmarkDon't throw away those small pieces of leftover canvas. Instead, make personalized needlepoint bookmarks. I am making some for my grandkids.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1


  • leftover needlepoint canvas
  • needlepoint yarn
  • needle with large eye
  • scissors
  • pattern
  • piece of felt for back
  • glue


  1. Cut needlepoint canvas to desired size for a bookmark.
  2. Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - plastic canvas cut to size
  3. Choose a design or to make it personalized with a name, I found this easy alphabet pattern online.
  4. Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - alphabet pattern printout
  5. Thread the needle (do not knot), insert the needle under the plastic canvas and bring it through the first square of your design. This is called the "continental stitch" which is a diagonal stitch going from one upper corner square diagonally to a lower square. This is the easiest of needlepoint stitches. Stitch the name or design using this stitch. Fill in the background with desired color using same stitch once the pattern or name is completed. (As you can see, I have used different colors because I am also using up scrap needlepoint yarn.)
  6. Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - yarn threaded needle coming up through a square
    Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - continental stitch made
    Personalized Needlepoint Bookmarks - name done in different colors, finishing yellow portion of the background

  7. Finish the edge of the bookmark by inserting needle in and out of each square. Glue a piece of felt to back to hide stitching and to give it a nice, completed look.
