A while ago I tried to make bookcloth myself.
Een tijdje geleden probeerde ik zelf boekbindlinnen te maken.
I searched for scraps of soft pink, blue and beige linen fabric in my stash, I ordered some 'Heat 'n Bond' and watched a tutorial by Bitter Melon Bindery. After that I was ready to give it a try. I attached the paper to the back of the linen fabric with the help of my iron and some Heat 'n Bond. A very simple and easy way to paperback any fabric.
I decided to make 3 identical case bound books with the bookcloth. So I looked for matching endpapers and ribbon to use as a bookmark.
During Fodder Challenge 2023 Sarah Gardner taught us how to make 'Woven Fodder Papers'. I colored the backgrounds with ecoline ink and made the patterns using a dip pen and ink.
During July I joined the Fodder Challenge by Willa Wanders. I didn't have time to finish all of the challenges, just did a few that spoke to me. For the cover of this book I was inspired by the lesson of Day 2: 'Collaged Notebook Covers' by Barbara Smucker.
