I cut off the selvedge as I use the fabric but I use lots of scrap fabrics so I rely on friends and lovely quilters to keep their selvedges and send them to me or I buy them online. I do try and keep the plain selvedges and word selvedges separated but it doesn't always happen. I have them in bags which I can grab and take to our fishing cabin so I can sew on the verdandah.

Very cute! It would be a nice table topper for a couple "tying the knot" .

That's awesome! Maybe too cute for a pet? Or a very lucky pet will be very happy to snuggle up on it!

I just love the things you do with selvages Lynnie, I tried saving mine and then everything gets cluttered and in the bin they go. If I think about it I cut the selvages off before I make any cuts but sometimes I forget.
