For Any Bookbinders

So is anyone else addicted to these blog giveaways? this one is super cool so I'm going to link it. If anyone is a bookbinder you will appreciate this japanese paper giveaway. I just started working on making myself another sketchbook using a new method I found of making bookcloth. This method uses heat n' bond and tissue paper. I'll post a picture when I finish which might be a while.I usually just glue my fabric straight to the chipboard because bookcloth is so pricey but you have to be careful what fabric you use. Rice paper is really nice because it is a) beautiful, b) flexible and c) strong.

I'm also learning to make cloth diapers and use a sewing machine again. Life is very interesting.
