Make Your Own Sketchbooks

This lovely item is made entirely from old Primark bags (apart from the thread & glue of course). It has 8 signatures of 16 pages, that makes 128 (including front and back cover). Each one is sewn together & then sewn (and glued because I got a bit lazy with the sewing) to the others. I used the handles off the bags to wrap around the spine to create a stronger bind & a semi-hardback effect. This took ages, probably about 4/5 hours total but I'm pretty happy with it. Brown paper is good.
