Middle school- hand binding with the Coptic stitch

I love middle school!!! These sweet kids were so persistent and expressed such great team work as they decorated, made "signatures" (that is what a group of papers is called in book binding), punched a ridiculous amount of holes ;) and eventually learned how to sew the ancient Coptic stitch to bind their art journals. I think the images speak for themselves with how beautiful they turned out. This project was tough and we jumped right into it the second week of school but they were really positive as they learned!
