Which do you love more?—paper or fabric?
I know. I know.  Fabric is probably my first crush.  But the variety of paper these days?!  There are so many amazing prints, textures, and materials to choose from!
(Thank you for that, scrapbooking world).

And since I’m not much of a scrapbooker, I’m always looking for fun ways to use those papers.
Like….sewing them? YES!

    Dana – what a great idea! I can see these as a project for our kids this weekend. Thanks for the video tutorial. Quick question — What type of needle do you use when sewing the books? Thanks!

      Awesome yes! It’s the perfect weekend project 🙂
      I just use a standard average sewing needle when I sew with paper. But you probably want to change the needle afterward, because the paper will dull it.
      Have fun!

    This is awesome!! I have made little homemade books for my 8yo daughter for years from regular old colored construction paper and staples. Lately, I think she has grown tired of the staples, even though her love for writing stories has intensified. She’s going to love these (especially the sparkly ones)! Thank you for sharing these ideas!
