Japanese Stab Binding - 3 Techniques

classes jane paper crafts Aug 08, 2022

Homework Challenge: #kcajapanesestabbinding

Introduction:

Japanese Stab Binding is exactly what it sounds like. Books are bound together after the binder stabs holes along the left spine and sews thread through the holes to bind the book. It can be the standard 4-Hole Japanese Stab Binding called "Yotsume Toji" that I taught last year or it can be more intricate in design like the Hemp Leaf Binding or "Asa-No-Ha Toji". 

I will be showing you how to create a simple Inner Binding to hold the inside pages together as well as the Noble Binding or "Koki Toji" along with the Hemp Leaf Binding. 

Topics Covered:

  • Create an Inner Binding
  • Create templates
  • Start with the Noble Binding stitch
  • End with Hemp Leaf Binding stitch
