EEEEEE this is the first handmade book i've made in about three years so it isn't perfect, but I think (hope!) it will be appreciated. I cut the cover from canvas board. Then I machine sewed four cotton squares together with another in the centre for decoration. I glued this onto the front board, folded it over teh edge, glued that then used a sheet of strong sticky backed plastic to cover the board and hold the cloth securely. I did the same for the back.

To do the pages i machine sewed them in batches of six/seven, then machine sewed two batches at a time together. Then I stapled those batches together and attached them to the cover.
