I found a GEORGOUS album on Etsy that uses an expandable file (brown accordion shaped one) for it's spine. She stitched the pages into the spine. Anyone ever done this? If so, how and can you point me to any tutorials.

Thanks!

I love that artist's work and have pinned her journals for some time now. A friend purchased one of her journals and the quality of her work is excellent -- very clean and precise. I also think the ideas she shows for the journals are unique and very interesting.

With that said, the stitch you have shown is a simple booking stitch. If you search for book binding, I'm confident you'll be able to find that pattern, as well as many other stitch binding patterns.

Yah, the binding she does is rather "simple". It's a Coptic stitch using he accordion of something - probably to make it easer. Search yt for Coptic stitch sand you'll find a ton of tutorials
