This is just what I needed Shocked (I hate glue)

Thanks so much for putting this together! Smiley

Thank you for this tutorial

I have everything ready to go but after the first 'loop' of thread in the first signature. I don't know how to get into the second signature to come out through the binding hole and the spine hole.

Do you mean that after the first 'loop' done on the first signature the thread is then put from the outside spine hole through the binding hole to the inside of the signature to then loop over the spine edge.

I hope i'm making sense. Could you post more pictures of this bit? i mean step by step?....starting with the first hole in the first signature?....Gwad i'm confused!!!

What a beautiful binding! Thanks for this well-done tutorial. The nice photos really clarify everything. Can't wait to try it out!

Okay...to clear this up for you FeeSewBug after the first signature you bring your thread over the spine and go inside the second signature and out through the holes. You always bring your thread out from the inside of the signatures.

And this book has eight signatures, and each signature is two sheets folded. But you can make it have as many signatures as you want and as many pages in each signature as you like (I was using a slightly thicker drawing paper that when folded together didn't nest very tightly.)

I just used this and I love it!  I'll post pics of what I made soon. I definitely need to work on maintaining a constant tension, but other than that I had no problems!  Thanks for such a great tute!

What a great tutorial! I just spent a good 45 minutes looking through the Make Me A Journal swap (March '08) and I was astounded at all the creativity in one place. I am bookmarking this tutorial for a future date when I feel confident and ready to take on a new project.

Great work.

What a great and simple method!  I've been looking for a binding method for younger kids and I think this may work!  THank-you so much!!!!
