This week's lesson was to craft a book with contemporary long stitch binding and wraparound cover.

The first step is to cut and fold the inside pages' paper. Next is bonding the paper to card for the wraparound cover made in the previous lesson.

Now with a bare-boned book, the windows on the spine are measured and cut-out. Each sewing hole is pierced with a needle.

The twine is now sewn into the spine, creating the long stitch.
