Nancy's Selvage Bags are Gifts


Nancy in Connecticut made these small zippered selvage bags as gifts. I like how she used a zig zag stitch to attach the selvages. Good idea! Here's what Nancy said about them:
"These are some small sewing bags that I made for the ladies in our church's quilting group, Peace by Piece Quilters. They save selvedges for me. I had them pick three selvedge strips and I picked out 3-4 matching ones. They didn't see what I picked until the bags were finished. The bags are for their seam rippers, scissors, threads, needles, etc. I think they came out great! Hope the girls like them."
I'm sure they will! Nancy has a blog about her quilting group: http://peacebypiecequilters.blogspot.com/.

Hi, this is the first time I have visited your blog, I was bought Quilts from the Selvage edge for Christmas and I love it and I am really looking forward to giving the quilts a try.
