Hello there! I don't believe that Iv ever posted on this board before usually I'm in the Crochet boards or at the Harry Potter craftalong.Which is where I first posted this project. A few days ago I desided to buy a travel sized sketch book like the ones Id seen at walmart and just personalise it. but when they ran out i just bought a pad of paper.later that night I happened upon a bookbinding tute on pinterest which i then nosed around on youtube and found a great tute for a coptic stitched sketch book http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2FRKbQI2kY and I just dived in! I followed the tute and added some fabric and scrap paper to the covers...after i bound the book (I wouldn't recommend doing it in that order but I couldn't find some of my supplies and I was too excited to wait). Also i needed more than 2 lines of stitching but I didn't think that one through very well lol. So I glued and folded a black bit of fabric to reinforce the spine.Since I'm always loosing my pencils, a book strap was born out of the cut off hem from the sleeve of an old black tee. all i had to do was clip a small hole in the tube created by the hem and stash the pencil inside! I'm definitely going to make more of these I love the fact that it lies flat and i got to use one of my fave fabrics. The fabric glue i used on the black part left streaks but the clear school glue I used for the rest worked great
anyway heres a pic. What do ya think? not bad for a first try I think.
