Bookmaking – Chapter 2

Bookmaking workshops are growing exponentially at Spellbound. We had 22 children registered to make books for Father’s Day this past Sunday. Boy was it fun. Kids ranged in age from 5 to 12 years old. Some worked quickly; others took their time. But everyone took home a great handmade gift for dad.

We learned a quick way to make an eight page book from just one piece of paper. After folding our books, I sewed a quick seam on my sewing machine (Did you know you could sew paper with a regular sewing machine? You can! And it is ‘sew’ fun!)

We are thinking of having another bookmaking day next month in which we’ll make four books out of a regular paper grocery bag. Leslie is still setting the date for that one, so we’ll keep you posted.
