I’m so excited to share book number 8 in my 50 Book Challenge with you because it has recycled fabric covers. I’ve wanted to incorporate recycled fabric into my projects for a while, so during one of our recent snowstorms, I cut up a pair of my daughter’s outgrown pajamas and designed this cute 4″ x 6″ book.
The signatures (made from plain copier paper) are sewn over linen tapes using a french link stitch – I love how that looks. And the book block is attached to the covers with the tapes and glue.
I’m currently working on some video tutorials and I promise this will be one of the first books that I tackle. It’ll be so much easier to show you than explain using words. If you don’t want to miss the videos, please sign up for my weekly newsletter.
