Selvedge strips - Heals, Lucienne Day etc..



I re-discovered a box full of selvedge strips that I'd saved. (Don't ask why - I'm a bit of a geek in this way!) I think they look quite interesting lined up in rows - I might frame them. Any other ideas welcome!

Hi Jane
I remember seeing some cosmetic size purses once, made of selvedge strips, which looked really effective.
Love your blog

That's totally something I would do...save selvedge strips! I like the idea of framing them. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I think you can do anything with them, just time consuming to sew them together.
