ReFabulous... it's new again.: Make your own paperback wallet!

This basic wallet was not my idea... the original link does not work (but here it is anyway.) The original design was flawed, and the wallets ripped the first time you opened them. I changed the design, and made them much, much stronger. My own wallet is over 1 1/2 years in use now, and still going strong. Not bad, huh? (And let me apologize in advance for the book cover I used in the tutorial. Enjoy! Gather your supplies: Make template and cut pieces: **Cut a template measuring 4" X 7" from scrap paper. **I just took a piece of scrap cardstock about 2" long, and 4" wide.

Suffice to say, it’s a general way to denote sewing your paper to the cover of your book. I’m sure you’ve noticed journals out there with exposed sewing in the binding in a variety of patterns and designs. They are all technically longstitch binding techniques, but in different patterns. The materials for this project include leather, paper, thread, needle, an awl and cutting device of some sort. Regarding the thread, I’m using a natural linen thread in this example, but you can also use waxed thread sold specifically for bookbinding to prevent knotting up when sewing.
