I'm stingy when I cut off the selvedges. I don't want to waste even an eighth of an inch of usable fabric so I cut them pretty skinny. In the past, when my
I was all set to box up the latest batch of those little edges and send them off to the first taker when I paused....and thought to myself.........I bet I could make something with all that fabric. Let's see..................I don't need more tote bags. I don't have any desire to make a selvedge coat or skirt or vest. I certainly don't need to start another quilt since I have at least 15 in various stages already. So, how about a throw rug for my new floor in the sewing room? Sounds plausible. I'll just pull out some old ugly fabric from my stash to use as a foundation/back and sew all those yards & yards of selvedge edges down until I have a nice big square. Then I'll bind the edge and VOILA...a rug.
Now, be honest. Is this not the finishing touch to my sewing room redo?
