Crocheted Selvage Purses for Fund-Raiser

Brenda (of http://www.scrapsandstrings.blogspot.com/) alerted me to this fund-raising project going on in Iowa. The proceeds are going to the Mennonite Central Committee to benefit "Global Family" (to fund education for children in India). This is what the sponsoring "Love Joy Peace" blog had to say:

"Talk about laugher and fun at the North American Relief Sale meetings in Iowa City when we started talking "Green"! What can a selvage do? "You throw them away", was the first response. The crochet hook was moving right along as Marlys's friend had supplied balls of selvages from their quilt borders. The result: Bags and Purses! Each one was different: Bags with fabric handles for over the shoulder to Clutch Handbags. As the ideas and suggestions came, each purse was different. (The crochet hook is still going, too)."
