Flash forward to 2037, when your daughter wins the Nobel Prize for Fashion Physics:

" I owe all my success to my mother's brilliant, clever, astonishing Close Your Clothes book."

This is incredible and certainly worth your labors!  You should think about contacting a publisher about this, seriously.  Love it!

This is awesome. Beautifully designed and put together. I have mountains of  respect for people who pack this much effort and love into their children's gifts.

Brilliant, how did you bind the book?

thank you so much everyone!!

i bound the pages onto a rectangular piece of cloth backed by a piece of felt. i just drew straight lines on the fabric about a half-inch apart so that the thickness of each page would be accomodated, and then sewed each page to each line along the end. then i put a rectangle of cardboard, another piece of felt, and another piece of fabric on top to hide all the stitching. oh, did i mention this is all hand-stitched? not sure how you'd do it with a machine...
