Yet another book I have been making.. this one is 4.5 inches by 6inches.. and is about 160 pages..  i sewed a turtle on the cover with small straight stitches from some scrap green fabric that was on my desk..  the eye is a white pearl sequin and a black bead Smiley Nothing overly complicated.. the fabric is glued to the cover and has plain paper end pages, this one was a small gift for my SO seeing as he loves turtles Smiley Any comments? Crits?

Very sweet. The simplicity is beautiful.  Cheesy I've been binding books for weeks as xmas gifts and love turtles, so I think this is just great. What type of paper is used inside? Looks pretty thick.

Thanks! It was my aim to make something simple  it was acutally a test book for a larger one ( the same size as the green one I posted a few days ago) which I am making for a friend. The paper inside is a 90gsm  fake parchment I got at a store in bulk, I rather like the paper Smiley easy to draw on and my markers don't go through Smiley

it worked up so quickly I didn't get a chance to put any in work images up!

that is adorable.. it would be perfect as a gift for say a little girl or something..  but then again we all need to embrace our inner child lol

hehe! I actually made and gave this one to my partner.. we both love turtles.. I have a set of illustrations I do of turtles (very cute) which I gave him all the paper drawings too for his birthday this year..  he commented after seeing the others I had made he wished he had better penmanship so that he could write/draw in one.. so I made him this little guy. 

I am glad you all like it Smiley
