    Selvedge Apron

    I haven't posted in ages, life and summer just seemed to get in the way but I am still having so much fun on my selvedge projects. Thought you would like to see my selvedge apron which I have just finished. I drew up a rough pattern from a pic so if I made another one, I would use a 'real' pattern but I am really happy with the end result. When I get a spare half hour, I will upload my other selvedge quilts into an album for everyone to see.

    That's really nice! I love the green piping. I'm looking forward to seeing the other aprons you've made. How do you sew those tiny selvedges together? (I'm showing how new I am to quilting with that question....)

    Cute apron. How much fabric does one have to buy to get enough selvedges to make an apron? Just curious.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That apron would make me want to cook!! Just wonderful. Can you let us know how to access your album when you get things posted, please? (Haven't done that yet.)

    I love your apron. You must be a very patient individual. I don't have enough patience or years left to even sew all those little strips into one big piece. LOL
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love your apron. Did you use a pattern? Do you use a foundation fabric or paper? What do you do with all the strips of selvage that don't have writing on it - do you throw them away. I have a lot of selvages saved, but found the ones with writing on them are a lot less that all the ones without. I've often wondered what people do with the left overs.

    Sorry for all the questions. I love your project and it motivates me to get mine out.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
