I actually made all three of these over the weekend, but works been kinda busy so Im just now getting around to sharing them. The first one that I completed was the one with the girl on the cover and I was so pleased with the results that I made two more to give as gifts.

For the covers, I just sewed fabric on (not glued) and it turned out very nicely.

More details at the blag.

Who in their right mind can resist pretty things?

(irony and sarcasm warning)
You should feel ashamed, what makes you think you can just make such beautiful things and show them to the world? I had enough projects, more than enough to be truthful, and all were on hold until graduation. And then i see your books, and i look in your blog and i see your reference to those videos... and i get that feeling: "i can do this". That feeling however doesn't care for the fact that i'm in the middle of a move and that everything is in boxes, and that i don't even have a pair of sissors. So upon seeing ur books what do i do? I take a kitchen knife to cut paper, strange old leather needles to make holes and to sew and use dental floss to try out the binding... and it worked. But the thing is, if it works even with so wrong supplies, how will i keep from getting the right supplies and doing a proper book??

(end of irony and sarcasm)

Your books are really beautiful, and they really inspired me to try something I've been wanting to try for a long time, just wish I hadn't seen your books for two more weeks, so that I could have written school papers instead of dreaming of coptic stitches and hard covers.

Those are awesome! <3 The fabrics remind me of those cute origami papers.
