Meet Patrizia Rossini of Rome!


Patrizia Rossini of Rome, Italy made these beautiful bags using selvages. The top photo is a bag made from the selvages of Japanese fabrics, and the bottom photo is a bag made from African fabrics! What soft, warm earth colors.
Weaving the selvages is such a creative idea. And the sturdy selvage makes a strong bag.
Brava, Patrizia!

Beautiful bags, and what a brilliant idea! I may give that a try - still have lots and lots of selvages.

It's a curious fact: The more selvage quilts you make, the more your selvage stash grows!

Patrizia sent me a quilt for the Abruzzo's project, she is one fun lady, i know her just from an e mail exchange about the quilt she sent, but i can tell you she is energetic and does, as you can see, beautiful work...bags are a big thing in the quilting world here in italy! Love ~ Roberta ~

Thanks. I'm glad you appreciated my bags. I like not to waste any piece of fabric and weaving selvages (or
ribbons) is a very relaxing work. Patrizia (but people knows me as ziaross !!)
