sew amazing!

Lockstitch
Lockstitch



Don't you think this "tinternet" is really wonderful?  I do.  I found these 2 super animations tonight showing how a lock stitch is formed on a sewing machine. I discovered the top one whilst looking at this rather lovely selvedge blog but the source originates from Wikipedia and the second one I found at this blog.

Wow - thanks for this. You can see how it wouldn't take much for it to go wrong!
