Kaaba Paper Clip Bookmark {Tutorial}

Today’s Ramadan craft is making a felt Kaaba paper clip bookmark.  It does require a little bit of sewing, but still a very easy craft to make.

According to Wikipedia, the Kaaba is
The Kaab’a (Arabic: الكعبة‎‎), also referred as Al Kaab’a Al Musharrafah (The Holy Kaab’a), is a building at the center of Islam’s most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram, in Mecca, al-Hejaz, Saudi Arabia. It is the most sacred site in Islam and considered the “House of Allah.”


Paper clip
Embroidery thread
Gold ribbon
Black and yellow felt

Cut the yellow felt into a strip that is about half an inch wide and about three inches long.

Fold the yellow felt over the end of the paper clip and sew the two ends together.
Cut a piece of black felt into a four inch square.

Cut the ribbon to fit across the top of the square and sew it down with the embroidery thread.

Sew the black square to your yellow strip of felt.

That’s it!  Your Kaab’a bookmark is ready to use.
