Default Selvage tote

I love working with selvages! Here is the first one: Selvage Rail Tote - finished UFO After I made the bag, I became the recipient of many selvages from a generous quilter. So last fall I dug through the box of short selvages and started the fence rail sections for this bag at a fall quilt retreat. Then the selvage block panel hung on the design wall until I recently finished the tote (yeah!) and gifted it. Now to find a new selvage project!

Love your bag. I keep saying I'm going to save my selvages but forget to do it when cleaning up.

Those are always the cutest projects. Love your bag and would have a hard time gifting it. Did you stitch the selvages to a background piece first?

Rhonda, Yes, I sewed the selvages to muslin pieces that are the fence rail blocks that become the front panel for the large front pocket. Pinterest and YouTube have tons of selvage project ideas.

Ingenious. I throw away my selvages. You've repurposed your selvages very successfully.
