Coptic Stitch – Handmade Journal

This is my first attempt at coptic stitch book binding. I think though I can definitely improve on my skills, I still liked the results. What say? 🙂  🙂

Let’s see how I went about it…

Steps:

1. A4 size papers, folded into half

2. Make pin holes in the fold at equal intervals

3. Coptic stitch will bind these papers into a bound journal (the link to coptic stitch is provided for your reference, though I have learnt from somewhere else!)

4. Prepare your journal cover (I used a card board, a foam sheet and fabric)

5. Attach these covers to the bound journal

6. I have used a satin ribbon to give extra jazz (it is purely optional)

7. Voila… it is ready 😀

 

I am happy the way it looks. Now it will be gifted to a dear friend 🙂

Ciao, till we meet again 🙂

Love,

Sakhi
