Book Binding

Last night I finished my first EVER book made with book cloth. My books didn't come out as beautiful as I wanted them to but as my friend Stephen says, "You can't learn something and perfect it at the same time". These books are 4 x 6 inches. Hand stitched and bound.

In one of the pictures you see the pretty end papers I selected but I did it wrong and the beautiful part got glued to the cover.

The book I used for instructions is Bookcraft by Heather Weston. It was fun and I'll probably try more projects from her book.

I love it! Can you bring both books Fri?

Are the very loose WC's at the winery yours? Beautiful!
