In this tutorial, I'll show you how to sew and glue a text block for case binding your own book. I'll also include how to add a ribbon bookmark in the process. This video focuses on just the text block for case binding method itself.

Kettle stitching is the traditional method for case binding, but since I taught myself, this is my own modified version — a mixture of kettle and coptic stitching. If you're more familiar with coptic stitching, this should be an easy transition for you.
