Book Binding Loom

Dad made me a book loom for Christmas!  I can make any size book, so long as it’s miniature.  The first one to hit the ropes was a Dragons, because that was what I had cut and ready for binding.


The loom is made of mahogany with adjustable pine pegs.


My first attempt is not elaborate, but it worked well. A bigger book offers more interesting opportunities for binding.  I enjoy figuring all this out by trial and error!


The finished Dragons. Pink leather is difficult to find. This piece, a strip just wide enough for the under two inch Dragons cover, was once part of a small purse.
