This is what the front cover looked like after I did the stitching with a large needle and embroidery thread. I have used a similar stitch on some of my decos. I found a great site with instructions on how to do this called Japanese stab binding by Gary Miller. The site address is http://www.sdmart.org/pix/japanesebook.pdf#search='japanese%20stab%20binding' I liked how Sharie's stitching looked but I am too lazy and arthritic to do that! I needed to use a pair of pliers after awhile to help pull the needle through.
