Hem Stitch

Hem Stitch
Originally uploaded by notionnanny
At her workshop, Dianne has an old Singer sewing machine that makes a very pretty hem stitch. It belonged to Dianne's great-grandmother, and has been passed down through generations of stitchers in her family. For every stitch, the machine makes three passes over the same hole. This is how we decided to finish the edges of the "notions" bag we were going to make.
