Recently, while spending a little time checking out other blogs I came across this one which has great ideas on what to do with those selvage edges. Since I was re-organizing my fabrics anyway I decided to begin collecting all those edges and thinking of ways I might use them. Turns out that since I buy almost exclusively batiks, usually fat quarters, I don't actually have a lot of fabrics with selvages containing text.
Still, I like the idea of seeing the text so I added what I had in the way of black and whites to a vest I was in the process of making.................the selvage edges turn a rather boring piece into something just a bit more interesting. I have a feeling I'll be taking a closer look at the "edges" of future fabric purchases.
