OOOOOOOOkkk.. so I wrote out this huge post about my project and then craftster went and died on me when I clicked on 'post'..! So here it is again!
I literally finished this book this morning, bookbinding is definitely my new obsession!
It's made using reclaimed leather (i have about 3 bin bags FULL) and has 200 blank pages for me to scrawl all over! This was only my second attempt at a book like this, I've also made a bunch of those seriously cute mini book pendants which go down a storm! (I've posted a couple of pictures of my first attempt at the bottom of the post!) I'd LOVE to know what you think!
For anyone wanting to give it a go, this thread should help you out and I've added a few sites that helped me which you can find on page 4: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174813.0
FYI, here's a photo of my first attempt. I tried this one without researching so it definitely could've been better! The thread I used was old crochet thread which snaps really easily (but I've used a nice strong linen for the newest one). The binding is also too loose on my first attempt but it really helped me figure things out! I love the pages too. coooooooool!
