Not a Happy Little Book

The little Maroon Book that didn't want to be.
Kept throwing me curve balls at every corner.

Washi paper end papers.

Lays open nice and flat ^^

My next venture into bookbinding.
Though I'm happy with the colours and fabric choice for the cover, i'm not happy with how the sewing turned out. I refered to some instructions from a book I own and, apart from making the process much more complicated than I'm used to doing, the stitches came out slightly looser and look rather strange to me... :/

So this one gets put onto the 'practise' shelf.

  1. Ohhh, don't shelve him!! It looks to purdy to be hidden away! I'll take it off your hands and use it!! It seriously looks like a very pretty book; you're getting much better at this new interest of yours!
