Haven't been doing any bookbinding in a while, there are from the last month or so!

The first one is reconstructed from an old book, I printed out all the lined pages on various colours of medium-weight cardstock. A nice sturdy journal. The book is "Death of a Thin-Skinned Animal" by Patrick Alexander.



Second one is an old book that I covered with this lovely Asian print fabric....took a while, but well-worth it. The corners and all turned out really neatly. I used parchment-like paper for this one. Don't have an individual picture, but here are the two posing for their glamour shots!

Wow! they are wicked!

how did you print out the lines like that?? (like, did you have your card stock folded in half when you sewed them in? if so...how did you get the lines to look right and stuff!) haha sorry! im a bit new at this! but id really like to know because so far ive only made scrapbooks because i didnt know how to sew in lined paper! but i really want to make a matching scrapbook and journal set! so help would be great Smiley

thankss Smiley

Thank you! *blush*

I used Microsoft Word to create a template that would print off the lines on the pages, then I printed the lines on both sides of the a sheet of cardstock, folded them and then just bound the book using the coptic stitch as usual with this tutorial:

Does that help?! I am terrible at explaining things. Just tell me if this makes sense or not Smiley These aren't the best pictures I've ever taken either, so I apologize for the crappy quality.
