alright, first of all, i had a scrabble set that had been laying around for ages, as i plan to make jewelwery out of the pieces, and i figured i may aswell put the board to good use,



i used a whole lot of coloured paper we had lying round, i used about 11 signatures of five pieces




i found a really simple coptic stitch tutorial on the internet

http://www.booklyn.org/education/coptic.pdf



and put it all together



the stitching was by far the hardest part, but it is really easy once you get the hang of it,

since it was so simple to make my own book, i decided to make another, bigger this time so i could use it for school


(front)

this is the front cover, both covers were made out of record covers i had laying around, i bought them ages ago because i thought they were cool


(back)

this is a very poor picture of the pages, i (can't show you the binding as it is covered up with lace)


i watercoloured some of the pages, because i thought the white ones were a bit dull,





thanks for reading,

It is better to destroy than to create what is meaningless.
