i was making a cloth covered book for my friend R's birthday and i sorta decided to photograph how i did it!
materials you will need:
fold paper into half
organise them into signatures (a folded group of pages) and poke holes by the side
sew them together
sew it to the cover
measure and cut a piece of card board slightly smaller than 1 page
put the card between the cover and 1st page and sew the sides up!
