saco redondo 23 / round bag 23

handmade embroidery with a kind of baker’s twine;
bordado à mão com fio norte e de juta.

I’ve found this Chinese knot in Deepa’s blog, that I love following. She teaches some peculiar stitches from India where she lives. Take a look at her blog – is lovely!
 
Encontrei este nó Chinês no blogue da Deepa, que gosto muito de seguir. Lá ensina alguns pontos invulgares da Índia, onde vive. Vão lá ver – tem bordados lindos!
Adenda: a pedido da Divânia aqui mostro os fios que uso nestes sacos
 
at Divânia‘s request here I’m showing the strings/twine I use in these bagsO fio de juta é esse novelo maior; o novelo branco é um fio que aqui, em Portugal, se usa muito nas confeitarias e padarias; o fio norte é um fio muito forte para fazer embrulhos – não sei de onde lhe vem o nome – e é exactamente da cor do linho que uso nestes sacos redondos.
The jute string is that big yarn; the white string is a kind of string most used in Portuguese confectioner’s shops and bakeries; the other string – here called north string, don’t ask me why – is a strong twine for packages and it has exactly the same shade of the linen I use to make these round bags.
