I have a small drawer (think kids shoe box) full of selvages. Anyone want them? I will divide between 2 people if wanted. Just PM me and send me your addy if I don't have it. Going in the trash this weekend if no one wants them.

About two years ago I started quilting and crocheting with selvages. I'd welcome more. I only recently became aware of this site so I know I'm out of luck this time but if you have started another stash of selvages and want to send them my way, just let me know.

Crocheting with them? Hmmmm? Interesting. They would be durable that's for sure. I would be interested in seeing projects like that too.

I have a couple of photos to share. First one is the crochet shoulder bag using selvages.



The second is "Old Maid's Puzzle-Solved".



Not sure if I got them posted properly. We'll soon see.

That is so pretty PomegranateQuilter!  I'd never have the patience.  Of course I don't know how to do that anyway!  lmao

Red they told me they like a little of the fabric with it so I usually cut mine 3/4 to 1" and whatever length I happen to have. They use small pieces when they put them at an angle and I figure they can cut out the "boring" parts if they don't want them.

Thanks for all of the kind words. I started making a jacket using selvages and a deconstructed sweatshirt. The back is almost done and now I'm going through my selvages to find appropriate ones for the sleeves and front panels. When I started, I had all of my selvages picked out for the project but shortly after I started, I received some more selvages that took my project in a slightly different direction than originally planned. For now it is a UFO that I'd like to have ready by autumn.

Red, when working with selvages for quilting, I like to have at least 3/4 inch of fabric...more is a bonus and allows me more options. If I'm planning on using lengthy selvages for crocheting, then just the selvage works fine.

Before Christmas, our guild workshop had us making paper pieced Christmas tree mug rugs with the colored/numbered dots on the selvage being machine appliquéd into place as garland.

Your projects are great. I love both of them and truly admire the patience that would take.
