The selvage bag is exceptional! Love it.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I certainly will! Thank you for the compliments!Originally Posted by SewExtreme
She just recently put on a presentation for a local Quilt Guild on how to make the best use of your scraps to get the most out of your fabric dollar, and she used the Selvage Bag as one of her samples. The handles are from Moda Jelly Roll ties.
We are a Fabric Shop, and know about the cost of fabric, so she does what she can to help her customers get the most for their money.

I love this post! Not sure how much I would make, but they are very interesting! Creative ideas!
Thank you for pointing that out about the straps. I hadn't noticed. I don't throw those away but so far, have just been saving them.Originally Posted by ThayerRags
I need to start saving my salvage. I will. When I have enough I will post and send to whoever responds first. Now to dig out of the trash what I just trimmed. Thanks for inspiring me to do something with it.
Amazing what quilters can come up with. I had a request once to save my selveges for someone who was making items to sell at our local quilt show. Had no idea what she made with them.
If my mom were still alive, she would be so proud of all of you. She constantly told us "waste not, want not". I will never throw away a selveage again. I love the bag idea.
Correction: I cut the 1.5" - 2.5" (sometimes wider if I love the fabric) by the length of the cut of the fabric not the WOF. You probably already guessed that anyway. :oops:Originally Posted by SewExtreme
Here is a simple table topper using a Snibbles pattern that I did with selvages. You can sew selvages together and then cut up like fabric......a great way to work outside the box.....:)
