    I call this my 'bag of many colors', and I just love it! I made the outer part entirely out of selvedges.

    How clever you are! Always wondered what to do with "selvages". I have learned so much on the QB!!

    It will hold a queen size quilt. Mine is about 33" wide by WOF. It is drawn up at the ends.

    What a cute purse and clever idea to use those saved up selvages. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, sorry, I called it a purse also. It doesn't look big enough to hold a quilt by the picture but that is even better. Great use of your selvages.

    I really should take a better picture, it is kind of blurred. Maybe I can have my DGD help me tomorrow. Maybe I can interest her in making one. She is a quilter too...has helped me since she was 4 yrs old and has made two lap sized quilts.
