Buttonhole is an age old, simple sewing stitch, and it adds a wonderfully decorative element to this hard cover book with an open spine. The non-adhesive binding is easy for beginning book artists to learn, and is a fun addition to the repertoire of more experienced bookmakers.  We love the interplay between the colored thread of the binding and the patterned paper used for the covers. Go for something wild if you want! The exposed signatures are fun to decorate as well. The end result is a beautiful blank journal worth giving as a special gift or filling with your own words. Cost includes most materials, please see the materials list.
Please Bring The Following Materials To Class:
  • Discarded magazine or catalog for gluing
  • Large sheet of decorative paper suitable for gluing over the cover boards (not tissue, and not too thick or lumpy)
  • Waxed linen thread, 4 yards. Can be in 2 colors, 2 yards each
  • Xacto knife and fresh blades
  • All other materials will be supplied
