I started saving selvage edges a while ago not realizing how quickly they would accumulate. But they did. They looked pretty in my glass jar, until it got too full, then I filled a second jar and finally moved to a storage container. Now it was time I did something with them.
One day my daughter asked me about the canvas bags I had made years and years and years ago before bringing your own was popular as she had decided she needed some for her shopping. On my last visit, I brought her dozen or so – don’t worry I still have plenty left. There was a time when I grocery shopped for a very large family. While we only had two biological children at the time, we also had 5 foster children (one whom we eventually adopted), and I ran a daycare with 6 full-time and 4 part-timers. So I needed a lot of bags when I grocery shopped.
I am super pleased with how “fun” it looks.
So do you collect selvage edges? I will post a tutorial for those that want a fun way to use them up.
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
