....hole in a jar.
Wait! I do need a hole in a jar. What's that you say? Yeppers. I wanted, nee, needed and ORT Jar.
Old Ratty Threads or old ratted threads, I like ratty better, just saying.
My new embroidery pincushion needed to be special since I already own
far too many several pincushions that have specific uses. :-) Please don't tell me every different color of pinhead and each style of pin do not need their own pincushion......cuz you would be soooooo be wrong. LOL
The pincushion needed to have a place for my ORTs and I didn't want to be taking the lid off every single time I used my jar. First, what a pain, second, what if I lost the lid or had to fish it out from under the couch if I dropped it? Nosireebob, not happening. I was also tired of the same thing happening to my scissors; sliding down into the couch cushions......don't get me started.
My ORT Jar
Love the Circa 1934 fabric.
It was hard to cut into my stash because I really ♥ this fabric line.
Top view. (duh, right)
A hole so I can stuff my threads down in the jar.
Look ma, I don't have to take off the lid!!
Wow, this pic makes me look like I have gigantor hands. lol.
The jar really is a good size. wide mouth and 12oz, about 4" tall and 3.5 inches wide.
A place for my scissors.
Sssshhhhhh, I got a new pair just for the jar.
50% off plus another 20% off with a coupon.
Can't go wrong with ginghers!
I ♥ coupons.
I ♥ scissors that fit my fingers.
Okay, okay, I ♥ having a bunch of scissors. Jeepers already.
Stem stitch practice.
Small lettering and stem stitch......not such a great combo.
I am still going to finish it with the stem stitch, but live and learn, right?
To join in on the ORT Jar fun, check out this site.
She's calling it TUSAL the totally useless sew-along. You post a pic of your jar every full moon.
That was last night/this morning. So this is my very first official ORT Jar post!!
