I've made a few of these babies - they are easier to make than you might think. The time guide below should be fairly true even if you have never made one before.
Part 1: making the cover - takes about 30 mins plus drying time
Part 2: The Signatures - takes about 10 mins
Part 3: Readying the Spine - takes about 5mins
Part 4: The Binding -takes about 30 mins
Other stuff you need:
- packing tape
- crochet cotton or strong thread
- awl or other pointy tool
This is currently my fav gift of choice to make and give to my mates....
