I bought a square of printed burlap (hessian?) because it seemed to me like something other people might like. It wasn’t the nicest material to work with, especially since I had to use a paper underlayer because the holes are so see-through. However, now that it’s finished, I do like the look of this! The strap is a wonderfully simple device that I’ll definitely use again.
There is probably a name for this kind of book but I’m not sure what it is. This was a trial run, the first I’ve made, and I didn’t know exactly how it would go together until it was done (that’s the way I go about things!). I learned that I need a new knife, one without the tip broken off, but I’ve got one and I think I’ll try this again.
