Book Bonuses

I went to a lecture about books and was inspired to create a sketchbook of my own. I always forget how many small fussy steps are involved with book binding.

I ended up sewing two sections of 5 pages each individually then sewed their spines together. It could probably have been made bigger but I couldn't stand doing all the edging steps again. Each hole had to be individually punched with an awl as well.

I also found this pretty embroidery book which has some lovely designs I can't wait to try out...

It can be found on Amazon.
I think I'll make some knitting bags or maybe a scene to put in one of my hanging embroidery hoops....
