I haven't made a book in quite a while but I always have a drawer full of pieces that I can put in. This book is a bigger one, 11 x 12, and I had fun making the file folder pockets. I have a great desire to use a coptic stitch to sew these books but I chickened out on this one and decided to just use the Rubicoil. I love the Rubicoil because I can tie on all sorts of fibers. It was fun!
