Fluffy Secret Belgian Binding
This is another one of the group of non-leather books I made recently. A few years ago, I acquired this amazing fabric from a box of stuff at my mom's house but never did anything with it. So I decided to finally use it. Obviously I also decided to experiment with the fluffy stuff too. I wanted to do the visible sewing in green, and this Turkish fibrous stuff was the perfect colour so I decided to try it. Since the textblock is sewn separately, it is still bound using ordinary linen bookbinding thread. So although the characteristic thread pattern isn't as obvious, the yarn still works adequately for attaching the covers and spine pieces like this.
