I'm working on one now.

I may have borrowed a couple of your amuhnals and embellishments.  I hope you don't mind.  :: bats eyelashes ::

Mine is for my sister's friends' baby.  His name is Braxton.  I decided 7 letters was enough so I'm only doing his first name.

I know this has been asked before, and I see how you made the pages with blanket stitch...but how did you attach the whole thing.  I don't think I get it or I missed it or something.

Thanks for the inspiration!!   Grin

Good luck! I hope it's going well!

I didn't get a good photo of the binding which I sort of made up as I went. It was sort of a vertical stem stitch, if that makes any sense. I went through two pages, then went back around one, went through two pages, went back around one, then did that all the way through and back until it felt secure. Don't make it too tight, though, or you can't turn the pages!

If someone figured out a better way, please let everyone know! I don't profess to be any sort of brilliant stitcher, just fairly determined!   Wink
