Lin's Sketch Book

This is the book block, ten signatures was sewn in. I forgotten the coptic sewing at the head and tail of the block. I like the pattern the thread made on the black ribbons. First time doing it. Not too bad. Got to practice more...

Pink and black. Black and pink. It's cute in a pretty gothic way. I'm not sure how that works but that's the best way to describe it I feel. And Lin agrees. She got the fabric and pearl shell buttons and wanted a book she could use to do her drawings in. The book measures to about 12 inches by 8 inches and over an inch thick. I used some of the buttons to add details to the black bows on the spine.

I actually owed her this book and there are still some leftovers of the material, I decided I'm just going to make some more books in different styles for her, in lieu of her birthday presents for the next few years, she is my future sister in law after all... A book a year, hehehe. That way by the time I used up all the material, she'll have a set of colour coordinated books! How cool is that?

Lin has yet to get her hands on this book... It's currently on display :-p


  1. this looks lovely! I like the stitching!

  2. I know, it's just a shame that the design of the book cover the stitching can't be seen... That just gave me an idea... :-D


Love to hear any feedbacks so I can keep on improving my work...
