3 thoughts on “japanese stab binding: variations on arrows

  1. Hi! I’m just starting to work on bookbinding and luckly found your site. Your work is amazing! These variations on arrows were too difficult to make? Did you use 2 needles or 2 threads? Do you have any tutorials?

    • I would say that any of my Japanese patterns that have an ‘X’ across the spine are a little more difficult than the others… but still doable for a beginner. I only use one thread and needle with my patterns, though I have actually been debating trying two different colors–so stay tuned! As yet I don’t have any tutorials, but as I’ve been asked about them several times in the past week so I’ll probably be posting one soon…
