Ive seen a few people online do bookbinding with ribbon and it looks really neat.  I cant tell how exactly its done, but its done without the signatures and sometimes people use a sewing frame to do it.  Anyone know what Im talking about or know a tutorial?  It seems like a neat thing to learn Smiley

Like This?

It's Japanese Stab Binding.  Here is another tute: http://www.wfu.edu/~gentryjn/stabbinding.pdf

You can use string or ribbon -- each gives a totally different effect.

You should ask the person who made that book. I did a little searching and this is her livejournal.


it looks regular old coptic binding that maybe somehow has ribbon sewn on. I'm not sure, it's hard to tell from the size of that picture.

Yea, I was able to ask her before, I just felt she might be offended because she's trying to sell those.  I honestly just want to know to make myself some.

I doubt she'll be offended. The worst that could happen is that she'll politley refuse. I think that's the same comfits that's on craftster too.  Since I saw you're post I've really wanted to know how to make those too and I've been googling all morning, so if i find something I'll let you know.

I'm still not quite sure if I get it though.

From what I gather, say you have 8 holes in a book...

Start hole 1 like you would doing regular coptic stitch, then using a running stitch down the rest of the holes (go out hole 2, into hole 3, out hole 4, into 5, out 6, into 7, out Cool. Then connect the next signature like with coptic, so that the end holes are the only ones holding the signatures together.... and so on.
