Quiltin Jeanie's Tote

Front (above), and Back (below).
And filled with all the money she saved by creating with selvages!

Jean in Council Bluffs, Iowa has finished her first selvage project. At first she didn't think she wanted to make anything with selvages, but you know how it goes. When I first saw the inside of this bag, I thought it had money in it! The handles are made out of money too. Very clever.
Take a look at Jean's beautiful blog: She also shows photos of the process of making the bag. Scroll down to March 31.
