Italian Insertion Stitch can be used for making a book binding. It is similar to the other insertion stitches that I used recently in class. I didn’t get to show a photo since I was having such trouble uploading photos when I was traveling.
The top one is knotted insertion stitch and the bottom one is grouped buttonhole stitches. We also did one with a lacing stitch and knotted buttonhole stitch on the edge.
All I’ve managed to get done today is to get the pages ready to be stitched. I haven’t started the insertion stitch yet and have to read the directions again as I haven’t tried this stitch yet. Hopefully, I’ll get more done on this tomorrow.
