I just love this thread bag. It holds Mettler, YLI and small Auriful threads. Each pocket has a strip of ultra suede and a zipper across the top. To use...open the zipper and place spools of thread across the row. Before closing the zipper...thread a strand of thread from a spool and then take the needle through the ultra suede. Do this with each spool in the row before closing the zipper.
Now when you hand applique you can place the bag beside you and simply pull on the tail of thread that is outside of the pocket. This bag keeps me organized which allows me to get a lot more applique completed.
