Justin’s Cloth Book

I made my Grandson Justin a Cloth Book for Christmas.
I used thick Terry Towels for the pages and assorted material for the appliquéd shapes.
After sewing the fronts and backs together to make pages, I realized it would be too thick to sew down the middle. Hummmmm, now what do I do?
I have an OLD Scrapbook that is held together with cord, and I decided that was how I’d would hold this together!
After searching for some assorted colors of crochet cotton thread, I took 5 colors and made a crochet chain. I took an awl, punched threw the pages, then used a crochet hook to make the holes a little bigger. Threaded a needle and pulled the chain threw all the holes, tied a knot and then a bow!
