Exclusively a Handbound Organizer!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. and Hello everyone,

These are series of handbound books, using Long Stitch binding, made by all bookbinders: Yogee, Michelle, Ms.Goh, Samantha, Honey and others at Fabric Fanatics. I love all different colors of books, and all nicest colors of thread showing here (^,~)


The Long Stitch binding involves sewing directly through the covering material and the stitches are visible on the spine. I love the simple/ordinary look of the basic long stitching, giving more masculine appearance and the butterfly pattern gives feminine look to the book.


"The beauty of the Long Stitch binding style for me is it's simplicity and robustness.
Also you need very few tools to make this style of book"

Mrs.Syam also taught us how to make the DANGLING using the extra leftover thread. The dangling works as a bookmark to the book and it can be made by using metal charms, cute buttons, beads and e.t.c.



Oh I made the red one, with special MADE FOR YOU charm (^___^)


I think that's all for now.
Thank you very much and have a blissful day.
