Re: [BKARTS] Headbands as part of sewing of the book



Gary Frost's blog recently pointed to this website:

http://www.artesdellibro.com/bancocabezadas.php

...which is an amazing resource for headbands. While it doesn't specifically address the idea of sewing them along with the structure, I think the illustrations are helpful in seeing how relatively easy it would be to extend a simple long stitch to do so.

all the best,

>>The original headbands were intrinsically a part
of the sewing of the book, and were used in lieu of
kettle stitches in linking the sections together.
They were a part of the construction of the book,
which possibly explains why they were (and are) at
both the head and tail, rather than just at the
head. <<

Does anybody has instructions how to work such a
headband?
