This is the outside of the ort keep. The bottom with the wool applique is the front when it is folded in half. You can see in this photo I added my initials and the date (which are upside down since it should be folded) to the back at the bottom.
This is the inside opened up. The bottom is some fabric (prettier in person) that was placed on the wool using heat-n-bond after all the wool applique was completed for a prettier look than the back of the stitching. The top in the picture is the part that holds the orts. Some batting was zig-zagged on the wool and this holds the orts until they can be disposed of. It is approximately 4"x6" and it folds up nicely taking up very little space in a stitching bag!
I will have more to report on later this week about the retreat and about a very fun garage sale find that occurred this past Friday.
