Making a Coptic-Stitch Bound Sketchbook


efloyd-20130519-sketchbook-1 In a few weeks, I am going on a trip, and I wanted to bring along a special sketchbook. My goal on this trip is to spend a lot of my free time sketching using quill and ink, exploring the medium, recording what I am seeing, and practicing drawing techniques.

For about a month I looked around trying to find a resource that sold sketchbooks with high quality paper, such a Twinrocker handmade paper. I was unable to find such a source, so I decided to make a sketchbook myself.


Supplies Used:


Using this youtube video and this blog post as reference, I sewed together a sketchbook.


And now I am excited to start using it!
