japanese stab binding #7: circus tents, rakes, swags, triple x’s, and “write” August 5, 2010 by Becca 7 Share this:PrintPinterestEmailTumblrLike this:Like Loading...
Your bindings are really impressive! I’d love to experiment with these techniques. Do you happen to have the tutorial on how to make these? Or books you referenced that offer these instructions?
Thanks and great job! :)
Thanks, Becky! All of the stab binds I post are my own creations. I am hoping to publish a book with tutorials for them at some point. Until then, let me know which one you’re interested in and I will post a tutorial as soon as I have time. Next one up is ‘plugs’!
hey~~ these are inspiring, i’m wondering how did you bind the “write” that you have shown here? i’m considering to bind a book with the word of “memory”… thank you so much!!
Thanks, Annie! When you ask how I bound the pattern, what do you mean? What the instructions are? ‘Memory’ shouldn’t be to difficult a bind to put together. It depends on if you want a cursive style, or all caps.
Just wanted to say that I too dig the glimpses I’m getting of what you’re doing. You’re helping me to think about how to finish a project I’ve been working on. Thanks!
love it Becca, may I ask, do you use a tool to make the holes or will a knitting needle suffice the novice?
You DO need a special tool, called an awl. It is much sharper than a knitting needle, plus it has a wooden handle that lets you put much more pressure on it than you ever could with just a knitting needle. Paper is tough to drill through! You can find a medium-sized awl in a lot of places, and they are usually pretty cheap.
