How much thread to use for binding?

What is a good rule of thumb to determine how long your thread should be to sew the pamphlet stitches, 3-hole vs. 5-hole? I would hate to have thread too long (waste) or too short (having to splice). Thanks!

Thread Length For Pamphlet Stitch
by: Debbie-Anne

Hi Regina,

I typically use 3x the height of my journal and find that to be enough to tie my knot and have tails if I want them.

Please check out the tutorial page 'for beginners'. I share a few pointers there that you might find helpful.

Happy crafting!
