Japanese stab binding tutorial: tiara

jsb-tiara

By popular request, the tiara pattern. Sorry this has taken so long, I’ve had a lot of personal stuff going on and I thought I had lost the pattern instructions and was going to have to recreate them from memory, but I found the paper today, yay! So here it is. A beginning bind, with only one small tricky part in the middle. Click on any photo to enlarge.

  1. Thanks Becca. I enjoy reading all about your wonderful Japanese stab bindings. I do some bookbinding myself and plan on trying a few projects with a couple of your binding designs. Keep them coming.

  2. Hello Becca, I’m so excited about the new tutorial, I wish I could come up with new stitches just like you. I’m a big fan of your work. I’ve been trying to get around to practicing some of your patterns but just haven’t been able to do it.
    Keep up the amazing job. Greetings from Mexico.

  3. Hi! Thank you for upload this pattern as you told yesterday!
    I saw it this morning but I couldn’t leave my message (I wrote and lost the text on my phone)..
    I love this one and I will use it for my degree thesis!
    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
