I am getting the selvages ready for ironing so decided to take some pictures of before. I am going to keep taking pictures during the process. That should be fun, you think? I have started collecting paper towel tubes so I can wrap them as I iron, thanks for the great tip! I am hoping I can do kind of color, value system else as I go to use them it will be a pain to figure out what to use. I want to put more then one layer on the tubes else the tubes will take over my home. Any more tips will be more then welcome. I am also considering the hanger tip and I was thinking maybe clothes pins somehow. Maybe DH can figure something out for me. I donít have much space, that is the problem Will have to figure it out as I go along. I have all my family saving tubes for me. Too funny. There are a lot more selvages then it looks in the pictures. I have a lot of ironing to do. So I will iron as I get tubes that way it won't feel like so much. But I am lucky. I have a steam press which for sure will help hurry things a long.

Here is the original link about the selvages.

Dumped the basket. See the envelopes,

I should have spread the envelopes out so you all could see how many. Maybe the next pics I will.

Can't see in the basket. It was over flowing.

Yes if you can. If it turns out I won't need them someone else always will. :D

Thanks for sharing your pictures, DonnaRae...I thought of you the other night when I emptied a Syran Wrap roll. Didn't want to throw the tube away but alas, I did. I think your color/value idea for wrapping your selvages is a good idea. Good luck...look forward to your PPP's (project progress pictures).
