Make Yourself a Selvage Tote Bag

Are you considering your next (or first) selvage project? How about a OOAK (one-of-a-kind) selvage tote bag. Won't that be fun to bring to guild meetings in the fall? And it's a nice souvenir of your quilting projects. Add buttons or patches or charms or beaded fringe or knotted selvage fringe! I just made that last one up as I started brain-storming. Oh, and how about those little mirrors from India.

I made the big selvage tote above. Click on the link below to see posts for this and 18 other totes made by various selvage quilters. Also go to the Index in the sidebar at right to see "Selvage Purses," etc.

When you make your tote, send a photo for all of us to admire. Have fun!

So cute, I have been wanting to make a selvage something and have been saving up, maybe I have enough for that. I have wanted to make a bag for a while too.
