japanese stab binding tutorial: tornados

This was a complicated tutorial to write (and I’ve been ill, so if there are any errors, please let me know), but I think that it’s about an intermediate level bind. The holes should be placed along four horizontal lines. When making the spine loops from stations 4, 18, and 32, DO NOT pull it too tight! You will have a hard time sewing the following loops if you do.

Next tutorial up…snake eye!
