Tie a knot near to the end of your thread, leaving a couple inch-long tail. To sew the first signature, start into the first hole from the outside, then out the second, into the third and out the fourth, then into the fifth and out of the last hole, being careful to pull the thread tightly, but not so tight as to rip the paper. Take your 2 short strips of cloth and place them under the thread between holes two and three, and then four and five, so that the strips are held in place by the thread.
