Measure out a length of thread that is as long as the spine times the number of signatures you plan to have. For example, our spine was six inches, times our five signatures, equals a 30-inch-long thread.In addition to the thread, cut two short strips from your loose cloth. These will need to fit widthwise between the holes in your signature, and wrap around the thickness of your book block. Ours were each about .75" wide and 1.5" long.
