Quick Selvedge Project

Whether you spell it selvedge, salvage, or selvege, you've probably seen some really lovely projects made with those printed fabric edges. (Like this dress. Wow!! She really does some amazing projects, check out her blog Ric Rac.)

I do not, however, have the patience (or skills) to save up so many selvedges and put them together in such a fashionable way. I do have crafter ADD, and this project is well within my short-attention-span capabilities. (Okay, I'm not really that incapable, but I do like to see the fruits of my labors sooner, rather than later.)

Cute, eh? I totally love the little sewing machine!

Hello there! My name is June said...

these are so very cute & a great use for the part of the fabric that would usually be thrown away!
