Today's video was recorded last July and then it sat. And sat, patiently waiting for it's second part.
The needle was threaded and inserted into the first pamphlet. I'm happy to report that this lovely binding is finished. In the first of two videos, learn tips for adding different sizes of paper into the signature.
Adding details such as sewing (or gluing or stamping or weaving or ...) to the papers before binding adds another layer of lovely texture to your finished book. Join me on Friday for Part 2: Stitching.
Here's a peek at the finished book. I wove the Long Stitch (demo'd in Part 2) with thin ribbon. I'm calling it the Corset Stitch :)
I've linked all supplies that you'll need below the video. Enjoy!
In addition to the Affiliate linked supplies (I get a % of the sale. No extra cost to you), I use a 22 or 24 tapestry needle, a phone book or mouse pad and 1/4" ribbon (available at most craft stores.)
