Elegance! What a lovely bag to hold your left over threads or 'Orts'. A matching scissors fob completes the set. Gorgeous colours, and useful too!
Look at this! Linda's first design is a sweet Ort Bag you can stitch and finish for all those silky threads you hate to throw away. Gather them in this adorable bag, and save them to stuff your next pincushion! Better yet, find a clear glass Christmas ball and stuff them in there for a memorable Christmas decoration.
In Thea's words:
Softly coloured overdyed silk creates a field of tulips at the bottom, a band of tiny pink tulips near the middle, and a band of cream satin stitches with Diamond Eyelets.. all create a feeling of exuisite beauty. The matching scissors fob is a work of art all by itself. The tulip motifs with the same overdyed silks look especially gorgeous! The ladies in Linda's stitching group were used to having a plain glass jar to hold their “orts” or leftover threads, and she thought they should have something prettier. So when she saw this bag's shape she thought it looked like a tulip just beginning to open it’s petals, and since Spring is her favorite season, she designed her Ort Bag in this fresh shape.This is Linda's first design for the Victoria Sampler. The soft green reminds us of the fresh grass, the gold the warming sun, and the tulip motifs of the flowers emerging from the earth. I just know you’ll have fun creating your own tulip-shaped Ort Bag for your next gathering of stitchers or guild retreat..! :) - Thea
