Ever since I began painting fabric I have been saving the selvedges.
Sometimes they are painted in situ and then removed. Sometimes they are removed before painting and then I keep them to mop up any bits of paint that have are left over. (I know, I need to get a life!)
I have already made a diary cover with them, but you only ever need one of those, and I did attempt making a pencil case, but zips are really not my thing and I don't want to have to repeat that experience too often!
I can maybe see a string quilt in my future but before I commit to that I am looking for suggestions. Any ideas?
