Today I will show you how I make a linkstitch journal.
First, I have cut the papers into a size that suits me. The leather is cut allowing a 2 mm margin. I used my hot stamping machine to make some gilding on the leather. Also, you can see the pattern for the holes.
Then we have to make the holes in the leather using an awl...
... and, with the same awl, we make the holes in the signatures.
Everything is ready for the sewing.
Finally, I attached the closing strap.
And a little collage with the final work.
