Paulette's Selvage Skirt-WOW!

Isn't this an amazing selvage skirt? I love it! This was made by Paulette Carr from Upper Michigan. Here's her story:

"I've been creating art in many mediums since I was a child. My passion at the time is cloth dolls and collage. But when I saw your book and looked at your blog I had to create something. I have six granddaughters and I love to alter denim for them. Here is a picture of my Selvage edge denim skirt. Question is, which girl gets the skirt! Thanks for the inspiration.....hope you like it......and I now have a purse in progress! Have a great day."

Be sure to show us the purse too! Thanks, Paulette. Great job!

I love it too! I have plans to make something from my selvages... perhaps in time for Christmas!

I love it three! I continue to be absolutely amazed at what people are doing with selvages. Who'd have thunk they could be so full of potential?

Obviously...I am a bit behind viewing this gorgeous creation, but had to leave my kudos for such a precious idea. I cringe when I think of all of the selvage I have thrown away!!!
