Sewn on Spine Book 4

New skills! And using materials from my shelves! I’m very enthusiastic about this book.

The decorative cloth is Three Cats Shweshwe purchased from Mnandi in Cape Town, South Africa. I added lightweight paper as a backing to make it suitable for bookcloth. I have two more to use as shown below.

I bought the black bookcloth at a spring book arts fair in Portland. It has a very subtle inclusion of a brassy colored thread, only fuzz really.

I chose the cross stitch sewing pattern for the spine. The best technique I found on YouTube linked here:

The text pages are Fabriano Artistico hot press.
