I made this book for my sis-in-law Ashley for Christmas.
For some reason the moment I drew her name
I knew I wanted to make her something. I literally haven't made a book in over a year and forgot how hard it was.
I made the fabric just like I did my Ugly Sweater party invites.
I love the way the bicycles turned out.
I did a hand stitch on the binding called the coptic stitch.
It's a little tricky at first, but you get the hang of it.
If you want to make a coptic book you can find a video on the stitch on youtube.
I don't know why, but when I gave this little wrapped present to Ashley I was super nervous. I guess after spending so much
time it's more important if they like it.
I threw in some red lipstick just in case.
And yes, one day a tutorial.
