oooh, if this really catches on, we'll have to do a fiber fat book page swap! maybe like a multiple partner thing kind of like the chunky houses swap. ooooh exciting!

ooh swappage! I could even see a little fabric scrap/yarn bits/ribbon/buttons swap...so many possibilities!

thorn- totally! I loooove finding ways to use those little bits and pieces of stuff I can't bring myself to toss. Isn't this fatbook thing perfect?

This is a cool idea!
I see four ways right off without doing typical bookbinding methods, that would give you expansion room:
1)use button holes, vertically along the page edges
2)sew ribbon, fabric or elastic loops to the edges
3)stamp metal eyelets in .
All of these methods will allow you to use some type of lacing.
OR...
4) you could sew together a few pages at a time, and eventually bind them together permanently, or with the fabric loops on each section.. or "signature", as it is called when book sections are made in sets of pages. There are some great tutes in the paper-crafts board on book-binding , but they can get quite involved.

 I'm not sure I'm going to do this right now. I was looking at it, because I was thinking of doing a sew-along, similar to this, only as a stitching tutorial. You may have just given me a format here.
This is definitely better than using a loose-leaf binder!

I was planning to start this yesterday, but in the morning I found that I was sick, and therefore out of commission the whole day! I feel sorry for my lil' rugrat 'cause I could barely sit up in order to play with him >_< I am feeling a whole buch better now that my fever has broken!

Nooo: Your first page turn out awesome!! I love all the fabric patterns you used in it! They work so well together!!

i'm glad you like it, guys!

klking- I like the idea of punching eyelets, if only I had one of those eyelet thingies. Maybe I'll have one by the time I finish my book Smiley

phizzy- i know that what you come up with is going to be RAD

tcm- sorry to hear you got sick Sad that's the worst, especially when you've got things you want to do. I hope you get well soon!

NOOO... Those eyelet stampers are super easy to use. I've had mine forever... and it hasn't been used in a long time. But, it's definitely the
cleanest way to finish the pages. Next to that, I'd go for the buttonholes.

I'll have to work one into my budget... wait! my birthday's coming up, maybe my DH will get me one ^_^    Well until i get one, I think I'm going to keep pages together with one of those wide chip clips.

Whenever I want eyelets, I just hammer them in myself. I have a board of wood, eyelets, a large and small set of eyelet setters, and... a hammer. >> I plan on using eyelets in my books. but probably not for binding them. Smiley I'll start one once I finish all my swap items and my two entries for the challenges I'm entering. Smiley /hope to enter.
