    Anyone know how to whip stitch? I am doing a cowboy LO and have an idea that whip stitching along the border would be cool, but I have no idea how to whip stitch (if I even have the right name?)

    Thanks in advance.

    Jennifer, here's what I'm thinking, I hope you understand it, lol. What if you take some eyelets, and space them evenly up the side of the page, like a quarter of an inch or so from the edge and about half an inch apart from each other. Then you could use your fiber/ribbon/leather cord through the eyelets, going up through the bottom one, then around the edge of the paper to the next. Repeat all the way up. I hope that all makes sense. I can see it in my head and I think it would be really cool if you can find some leather cord or even some twine since it's a cowboy layout. Hope this helps.

    if so I have added a few links that shows you the stitch just do it on the edge of paper rather than on fabric! a blanket stitch would eb pretty too!
