After lunch Margaret showed us how to line and finish the book jacket, she had brought the precut pieces of liner and bondaweb, and we finally stitched it all together, meaning we could finish the day school with a completed piece of work! All the books were completely different, and looked like a jewel box of colour and texture.
We worked very hard, but it was a very satisfying and enjoyable day.
