John 3:16 Patch

This is a wonderful craft to make this Lenten season. These patches can be used as bookmarks if you choose to sew a long brown ribbon to the back of the patch. The patch can be sewn or glued onto your Bible study bag or notebook. I also think they would be a nice addition to an Easter basket.

Supply List:

cream felt - cut into 2" circles

brown felt - cut into 3" circles

black or brown marker

brown embroidery thread

cross bead or button

Step 1 - cut out 2" cream felt circle and write John 3:16 on the felt with a black or brown marker.

Step 2 - sew over the John 3:16 with brown embroidery thread.

Step 4 - cut dark brown felt into 3" circles.

Step 5 - Sew the cream circle onto the dark brown circle with a running stitch.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
