Coptic stitch

One of my old commissions. Had to explain the book binding technique using coptic stitch, in 7 steps. (I learnt coptic stitch from this tutorial~by SeaLemonDIY)
It was the first time I tried to illustrate a tutorial for explaining things. I just had to create the illustrations, and the text was going to be added later to the pages.


  1. Wow! Shall try making once when bit free... nice instructions!

  2. Oh yes! Do check the video link. Its easy to follow. I saw some books where they use thin wooden board(really thin) for the cover sheets. And the wooden textures looked stunning! Im so going to try it some day.
