I’m not sorry to say goodbye to February – it’s been a tough, snow filled month here in New England. I just hope that March brings us some sunshine to melt all that white stuff and cheer us all up!
Today, I’m sharing the last ‘sewn over tapes’ binding (for a while). If you’ve been following along with my 50 Book Project, you’ll notice a theme – January’s books focused on long stitch bindings and February’s books were all ‘sewn over tapes’ bindings. March’s books will feature coptic bindings. If you want a quick recap, I’ve created a page where you can see them all listed and there’s also a button in the sidebar.
For book number 9, I combined a coptic binding with a french link stitch over tape. And I’m still smitten with fabric covers, so this one features a pretty quilting fabric that reminds me of Spring. It’s a long, narrow book that measures 4″ x 8″. Here’s a close up look at the French link stitch sewn over a piece of wide twill tape.
