I think why the ones I have done at home are not quite right is the stitching, so Lorraine how do you work out the distance between each stitch for both the large and the small ones, I'm getting okay with all the rest of the work.

Cut a bit of paper about 2 inches wide and the length of your page. Fold this in half and then fold each half into the middle. Open it out, and across the 3 creases put your tape. Make a mark either side of the tape in the CENTRE of the paper strip (you can find your centre by folding it in half lengthways if you want) and make a mark about 1 cm from either end too. You should have 8 marks.

Do exactly the same with a bit of card...or get the phone book out. Very Happy
Put your paper template into each of your signatures and then put it in an open phone book (see where I'm going?) and punch through the holes with your needle.

Make sure that you keep each signature the same way up when you put them down on the table as you only need to have your end holes out of alignment to get into trouble.
