Writing on Selvage Postcards


You already know that Anya writes on her selvage postcards. Here's how she does it: First she sews the selvage down using a straight stitch, then she programs her Bernina to stitch her message using the alphabet feature. So simple. What an ingenious idea!

The "Urban Inspirations" quilt show in Manhattan is going strong this weekend. Stop by at the Fashion Institute if you can (28th Street & 7th Ave). I'll post some photos soon.

Anya also just recently made a small bag from Lazy Girl Designs using selvages. It's so clever and cute.

That's a really good idea if you have a fancy, expensive sewing machine. If you don't, maybe you could print something out in black and white on a piece of fabric meant for a printer. Cut up a strip and walah!
