I've been hearing for some time now on my favourite Quilting forum about saving selvedges and making them into projects.  The idea certainly isn't anything new, but this little bag is my selvedge project.  I'll be keeping this one for myself as it kind of takes a while to save up enough selvedges to actually make something worthwhile. But I love this bag pattern because it feels just  right tucked under my arm, so I've made other bags using this pattern and using some of my favourite fabrics and I'll be selling them at the Handmade Expo in Ipswich on 27th June.  


  1. love the bag! can't get enough of those selvedges!

  2. It's so cute. I have a bag at home that I have thrown my selvages in and think that I shall make one of those clothesline bowls. I forgot to bring the stuff to the cottage, but am going home and may bring it and give your idea a try too...Oh I love your photo of the rag balls. Very artistic.
