After having coptic stitch book binding on my "to learn" list for a long time, I can finally say I've done it! After studying this YouTube tutorial, I made my very first hand-made coptic stitch journal! It's just a tiny one, but I'm happy with how it turned out. The cover is cereal box covered with nice paper, and the pages are watercolor paper.
I really wanted to practice the stitching, so I did eight signatures, but each signature is only one sheet folded in half. I'm not 100% sure I did everything exactly right, but oh well, it works! I'm just going to have to practice more.
Last night, I noticed these tiny little houses on one of my many ripped out kids book pages, so I made a set of three inchies. I used one of them to embellish the front of my tiny journal! Maybe one of these days, I'll make an inchie-sized little journal! Happy Thursday!
