Golden and made two books with the Belgian Secret binding. I knew that she had just moved into her own bedroom and I wanted to make one that matched the colors she had chosen for her walls. It turned out that the book on the left was perfect. Her name is spelled out in the inside with glitter alphabet stickers from a scrapbooking store. (I might have to make a similar one for myself with my own name in glitter. ;-) The book on the right is a little more sophisticated, so I gave that to my sister-in-law as a thank you for a wonderful weekend.
I've adapted the technique a bit now to make the binding a little more sturdy. My original instructions say to weave the cover thread through the text block sewing at the top and bottom. I now do an additional "weave" midpoint as well and it really makes the book feel a little more solid.
I can't quite tell you why I love this binding so much, but I do!...you can now see a collection of them on my Flickr page.
