These joyful mini books make great gifts and are a brilliant way to use up off cuts and smaller pieces remnant material.
My comprehensive video tutorials take you through the making process step-by-step and cover, how to prepare your pages, make a hole punch template and bind 4 books, each with a different exposed stitch. I then share 4 nifty ways to fasten your books using buttons, elastic and a leather/pleather wrap around, with lots of ideas on how to incorporate different materials into the books.
