    Selvage Rail Tote - finished UFO

    http://www.highstreetquiltdesigns.com/patterns.htm When I bought the pattern, I didn't have enough selvages so it stayed on the to-do-list on the whiteboard. So I just decided to tackle it and am quite pleased. The selvages are only on one side of the tote (which is also a pocket) and it is large enough for a laptop/other stuff.

    Very nice!! First time I've seen selvages used this way. I'm a huge fan of making totes. I've also been collecting selvages. I think I might try this one!!!

    That is really interesting with the selvages. Great way to use what is normally thrown out.
