Book Binding

21 May 2010

 Kate has been writing an anthology of poetry for school.

She wanted to present it in a hand made book, hand made by me!

One time and one time only have I ever made a book, following a tutorial given by Isis.

 She wanted just one piece of each colour so that the book looked like a rainbow.

So I tried, I couldn't really remember what to do and binding through one sheet of paper was perilous with a couple of tears( and almost tears, sob, sob for me)   in the paper but it turned out kind of OK.

Kate was thrilled so I guess that's all that matters.
