Printed tutorial: Tue-mouche binding



Learn how to make a tue-mouche binding, the soft cover variation of the dos rapporté binding.

A clever construction, but also an elegant one with its yap edges and discreet exposed sewn hinges, which will appeal to all lovers of lightness and understated beauty.
