How to Bind a Book by IsBreaLiomCaife How to Bind a Book by IsBreaLiomCaife

:bulletorange: A Note for Left-Handers: It doesn't matter whether you go right to left or left to right.
:bulletyellow: A Note for Metrics Users: Measurements given aren't precise. A metric ruler works just as well. Just keep your markings in close-ish clumps
:bulletgreen: It is suggested that you don't use fabric heavier than denim. For particularly light-colored or thin fabric: use cardboard that's close in color to the fabric so it doesn't show through.
:bulletblue: Questions? Feel free to put them in the comments section. I'd rather you didn't note questions about this to me, since someone else probably has the same question.
:bulletpurple: Fullview or download for full size. Feel free to use, abuse, and forget to credit my tutorial. Just please don't repost it or claim it as your own.

I no longer have access to some of the recommended supplies, sadly. They don't come out quite as neatly if you don't have a bone folder and an awl.

Personally, I learned the official method off of diagrams, albeit diagrams that are far better drawn than what I can personally draw. I'm not sure that I'd even be able to photograph it while keeping the necessary tension on it.

Thanks. I know it's plain without photos, but I couldn't find anything like it at the time, and I'm always glad when it's actually helpful.

Thanks...it's something that's a bit hard to show in writing, even with diagrams...it's easier to show in person, so I was just hoping it would be follow-able. Thanks for confirming that. I learned how to do it years ago in high school graphics, but I couldn't find a good refresher, so when I figured it out again off of the old book I made, this happened.
