New handmade notebook – Bradel Technique

I’m working in a new kind of handmade notebooks!
I’m using the bradel technique that, in my opinion, is a wonderful way of bookbinding.
Unlike the traditional binding, bradel give you a great finishing of the cover, since the cover is made with 3 separate pieces.
Bradel is perfect for decorative notebooks, since you can use at least 3 different materials without the effort of trying to do a perfect collage.

In this notebook I used 3 types of fabric, a black one and 2 with stripes. Before placing the fabric into the board, I’ve used my sewing machine to make my own strips! This way you can make a unique handmade notebook, because the fabric is also a unique pattern. And you can’t tell that is has been sewed.

Hope you liked!
