Ort Pen

Here's a clever gift for a stitcher — one that can be made in minutes. Take those orts you've been collecting and insert them into a Kreinik pen. (For those who don't know what orts are, they are bits of floss and thread leftover from stitching projects).

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Make-A-Pen
  • Kreinik small Bag O'Bits or your own orts
  • 4" x 6" sheet Kreinik Treasure Tape


Instructions:

  1. Remove the black tip, silver clip, and clear outside barrel of the pen to expose the design area.
  2. Wrap the Treasure Tape around the barrel to measure the design area (or create a paper template), and cut the tape into that size.
  3. Peel the backing off one side of the tape and adhere to the pen barrel. Lay flat, smoothing out any bubbles.
  4. Lay your orts on the design area, pressing into the tape. Periodically slip the clear outside barrel over your work to make sure your layer of thread isn't too thick.
  5. When finished, return the clear outside barrel, the silver clip, and the top cap.

Enjoy!
