my favorite use for all the paper leftovers I accumulate.
Below are a bunch of memo pads and notebooks I stitched together today. Their pages are of either extra notebook sheets, sketchbook paper, or ironed out brown packing paper and are bound in scrap screen printed card stock with sewing thread.
I generally make these notebooks in stages, rarely all in one sitting. One day I might size down prints or trimmings I think would look good as covers, some other day I'll spend an hour or two folding a bunch of signatures out of whatever stacks of excess paper I have lying around that isn't much good for printing on, and another day I'll take breaks throughout the day to match, stitch, and size the insides to their outsides.
Fronts and backs. Or backs and fronts. As you will.
Thanks for scrolling through!
