Now you can learn how to create your very own journal using the Daisy Stitch Runner toolkit. This binding method is popular in embroidery work, and has been adapted to bookbinding and leather work. This sewing method creates beautifully connecting daisy petal lines on the spine – the connecting stitches look like the petals of a daisy flower.
In the Daisy Stitch Runner tutorial, we illustrate how to sew one Daisy Stitch line; however, if you prefer to have more signatures/pages in your notebook or would like a more striking spine, the sewing technique can be duplicated.
This toolkit includes all the necessary tools and materials to get you started on your bookbinding journey.
