#LR01 -  Linda's Ort Bag

Elegance! What a lovely bag to hold your left over threads or  'Orts'. 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
