    Oh that is such a lovely leather book. I’m going to dig out my leather and start working on making my own little book. Thank you for the well done video. You did a great job of explaining each step.

    Hi Ali. Is the cord you used to close the journal 1/8″ or 1/4″? Also, is it suede or deerskin? I tried to find it on the Tandy website.

    I so wish you had not sped up through the stitching process-Since i have never done this before I needed to see it all at regular speed I do appreciate that you had seasoned book makers online and are sparing them the repeditive sewing.
    I did thoroughly enjoy the tutorial -thank you

      Glad you enjoyed the tutorial. Feel free to slow the video down – there’s an option on Youtube to do this.

    This was awesome! I made a brown suede book with pages that I dyed with onion skins. I used the brown suede for the cord too. Thank you!!

    Ali, thanks for a great tutorial. I have a questions if you wanted to add more signatures how would you go about that…more sewing holes? and would it have to be an odd number of sewing rows?

      good question Eileen. This is a 3 signature sewing, so if you added more signatures, it would have to be in increments of 3. if you decided to make a the book with 6 signatures, you would have 6 rows of holes and you would sew the first 3 and second 3 signatures separately. Basically, must repeating the sewing procedure.I hope that makes sense, if not, let me know.
