Machine Embroidered Candy Cane Bookmark- Free PES file

         For Machine Embroiders, get an early start on next year's giving season and make some book markers to add to your gifts.  Please find below the directions & the PES file that I digitized.  Remember if you don't use PES files, you can convert it to suit your machine.



******************** 
               Choose the thread colors as you like. I have made a color change in thread to cause the machine to stop just in case you would like to have different parts different colors.

Hoop fabric and stabilizer.
 




Step 1- An outline stitch is stitched to hold down fabric for embroidering.













Step 2 & 3- The candy cane & the word "read" will be embroidered. 







 






Step 4- Take hoop out of machine, but DO NOT take fabric out of hoop.
Add backing fabric to the backside as done here.

Step 5- Choose color for the satin stitched edge.

Step 6- Remove fabric from hoop and carefully trim book markers.  For neatness, remove as much of the frayed threads as possible.





Maybe you have a favorite librarian like I do, that could use a few book markers in the library's treasure box?
