    4. Stream your guided knit-along video.

    This was recorded during my live session on Saturday, November 4, 2023, and I hope it's useful for you to hear my explanation of the tips and tricks that helped me make this project!

    Here are the slides from the session: Slides from Bookmarked Guided Knitalong (PDF | 11 MB)

    If you are making the sliding matchbox-style book, here is a supportive, guided video that shows you how to assemble and glue the flat pack box.

     

    Do you want extra materials?

    If you would like more supplies, just not in kit form, I am happy to share my sources with you:

    These videos, sources for materials, and other templates are part of your kit purchase and part of what I sell (i.e., it's my job, so please don't give my work away for free!).
