This is my second coptic book. I’m not quite happy with how the stencilling turned out and am thinking about how to improve it. Perhaps I will make a leather cover for this one.
I think I should be able to get an even more interesting pattern by using two needles and two contrasting colours of thread. I could probably work it out myself how to make two-needle coptic stitching, but I would prefer to find some instructions :-)
The stitches are not quite as well defined as I would have liked, but I suppose that will come with practice and perhaps stiffer thread.
