Pega papel o tijeras: Tutorial: Encuadernación japonesa
The most common type of sewn bookbinding that I often default to, falls into the category of longstitch binding. It’s really a general categorization for many different methods of sewn binding. People have invented their own patterns and techniques and have probably called it something else as well. 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. Regarding my little awl, I use it to punch holes in the paper. Let me first explain how I made my leather cover, although you can do this with any other type of material. If I use a very heavy weight type of leather, I usually just cut it to size and consider it ready. Let’s prepare the signatures of paper that will go inside your book. Now that you have all your materials prepped, you are ready to sew!

ENCUADERNACION BELGA En la década de 1980 Anne Goy desarrolló este sistema de encuadernación, para los hispanos se llama encuadernación belga y para el resto “secret belgian binding” con la idea de que el libro se abriera completamente partiendo del aspecto de la encuadernación japonesa. Su idea la mostró a pocas personas pero las suficientes para que esta encuadernación se fuera popularizando, Hedi Kyle y Emily Martin fueron grandes impulsores de este método. Esta encuadernación de fácil ejecución se construye partiendo de unos cuadernillos sobre los que se tomas medidas, y con ellas se confeccionan las tapas y el lomo; las tapas y lomo se cosen entre sí de modo que nos sirva el conjunto (tapas y lomo) como soporte para el cosido posterior de los cuadernillos. Comenzamos formando 10 cuadernillos con cuatro bifolios cada uno. Tomamos las medidas, en este caso son de 20 por 12 cm Si tenemos un micrómetro mediremos el espesor de cada cuadernillo, en este trabajo el espesor del cuadernillo es de 1,15 mm. 0,6 mm

How to Make a Simple Bow These little bows are so simple and fun-- I make them all the time. They are so versatile-- you can wear them as shoe clips, hair clips, broaches, whatever you want! I've also attached them to headbands. (Photo from last year when I was obsessively watching Mad Men and attempting the bee hive hairdo. Looks a bit like Marge Simpson if you ask me. ;) ) How to Make Simple Bows: Step 1: First you need to cut a rectangle of fabric with a little sliver of fabric to set off to the side. Step 2: Next you need to fold the fabric onto itself, lengthwise. Step 3: Now fold the fabric in the other way to to middle. Step 4: Stitch those bad boys together. Step 5: With a curling iron, straightener, or iron, press the sides of the little sliver of fabric together. Step 6: All done!

jQuery for Designers Six paper flowers It got into my head that I needed to make some paper flowers. I don’t know why. But I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal because the Internet is a veritable smörgåsbord of craft tutorials, and all I had to do was fire up Lappy 5000 and pick one out. About 300,000 search results later, I was no longer any more confident in my ability to make a paper flower than I was in my cat’s ability to retrieve his stupid mouse instead of staring at my hand after I throw it. There were just too many choices and although I could compare the photos, they didn’t reflect (1) how good each tutorial was, (2) how closely my flower would resemble the picture, or (3) which flowers would look nice together. It was terribly overwhelming. Then again, I thought, if anyone is supposed to try every single one, it might as well be me. After some consideration, I decided that 300,000 might be a few too many to take on, so I narrowed it down to the six most promising and got to work. That’s all there is to it.
