~Kid Approved FREE – How to DIY Super Fast and Easy Felt Monster Bookmark~
Let’s learn how to make the Felt Monster bookmark but first a little how this bookmark came about. Recently I taught at my daughter Heidi’s 3rd grade class for Great American Teach In. This once a year event happens just before the Thanksgiving holiday at schools all over Florida, USA. The children’s parents, friends and local business professionals come to schools and share all about their professions. It is sincerely one of my favorite days of the year!
The idea of Great American Teach is to show the kids (grades K-12) what super cool jobs we have and to empower them to think about their future, even at a young age. I’ve been doing Great American Teach In for over 20 years, on and off. My father was a school teacher and I always presented at whichever school he was teaching at. I remember the first time I went I was fresh out of college and showed off some cool costumes from my Costume Design position at Busch Gardens. All the way to my now current position as Designer/Owner of Sue O’Very Designs.
The past 3 years I have shown how to make machine embroidery projects, all In the Hoop. This year, since making videos is so much fun and a huge part of my business, I taught the kids how to make a DIY video. From setting up the lights, focusing the camera, creating the steps and finally putting it all together and creating the video.
Thank you to all the students in my daughter 3rd grade class and her amazing teachers, Mrs. Trisha Powers and Mrs. Nicole Lamberton for their participation!

Thank you to the kids!
