Kite book by Marenne Kite book by Marenne
A book made on commission for someone that really loves kites. I used the secret Belgium binding on both sides. This book is completely adhesive-free, it is made out of several cut layers of paper stitched together.

Thanks! The fun thing about this "sewing layers" thing is, that there is no limit! As long as I can draw and cut it, I can make the cover! :)

What type of materials do you use for covers? Even though im having issues with the sewing, maybe I can just start with transforming covers for the time being...

This is just different colors of card-stock. and I have this paper punch that makes neat little holes.
It's also fun to take an old notebook, remove the covers and then put on your home made covers. You can dismantel the old covers to figure out dimensions and how they were made. I learned a lot that way!

An absolutely charming design. I love the colors, the stitches, the asymmetrical close, everything! And now I want to go fly a kite!

Thank you so much! Can you fly a kite? I think out here it would freeze or something ;) Oh and I never had one, so I don't even know if I can! :P

I can, but not right now - too cold and no breeze! In the springtime, though, we get the most excellent kite-flying weather!

Nothing quite lifts ones spirit like a sky full of darting kites. :D

This is just so awesome on so many accounts. I really like the binding, and the closure with the buttons is really neat too, and most of all I love the kite and the colours!
