Participants will learn two bookbinding stitches by creating this adorable chunky little book with a big button closure. The handmade paper choices available for this book are nearly endless! Participants will select a favorite paper from Art Papers Online’s wonderful warehouse and a coordinating big button. The text sections are sewn using a decorative “barber pole” stitch. The fore edge of the book is trimmed with a hand sewn “machine stitch.”

Irish waxed linen and beads will be used to create the tie closure and participants will learn how to finish the tie end with a small ornamental tassel. There’s lots of learning packed into this charming project!
