You spin me right round...

Woven spider wheel stitch

...like a Woven Spider Wheel stitch, performed here beautifully by Olisa! Olisa made this awesome turntable embroidery for a recent Phat Quarter swap. For the volume knob she used lots of layers of the new-to-me Woven Spider Wheel Stitch. I found a tutorial for this stitch here and here.

Turntable Phat Quarter Music Swap for Jojobooster

The record is made with back stitches and looks so shiny that I almost miss my old LP records.
