Embroidery Project - - - faux hand bound notebook cover
This project is based on a simple Japanese bookbinding techinique which I learnt from Gemma Jones.
I embroidered this vintage design some time ago & bound it using the Japanese binding method. I did feel a bit sorry that it's life span was going to be so short.
I've come up with a Japanese style embroidered cover which will have a much longer life expectancy & I thought that you clever stitchers might like to use the technique too. I think they make a fabulous gift idea.
Once you've completed the embroidery you'll need to assemble the cover. I put together a very simple fabric notebook cover tutorial last year which you might like to follow.
I look forward to seeing your covers popping up in the flickr group.
