When I went to my parent's last weekend I took picutures of books that I've made for my mom in the past.

I made a book for my mom and then put inside poems that I have written.




I used a coptic stich.


To remember our trip to Prince Edward Island I made a book for my mom that used a map of the island as a cover.







This was for my mom's 50th birthday.




The last one is a journal I made for a friend for Christmas.  She wanted something that she could write in.  I haven't found out how to have lined paper that you can fold in half and sew, so I had to use graph paper.  I covered the different signatures with different papers, including old calendar pages.
