I am making some gifts with this "homemade fabric". I got the idea of using selvages in a project that Manda did at Tree Fall Design. She made pin cushions that are darling.
I have been thinking about the interesting selvages I have been throwing away and wondering what else could be done to use them. I decided that sewing them together and making new "fabric" out of it would make endless possibilities. You could make anything from quilt squares to something wearable. I think hotpads would be super cute. Maybe I'll try that when I'm done with this project. If I could get our dog Shadow to sew instead of sleep I'd be much further ahead with my hand made gifts. - nanette
