Just playing

I have wanted to have a go at making something using selvedges for ages, and today inspiration struck. I only had a small selection, but enough for a zipper pouch.

I put the linen on the top. Looking at it finished, I think I would adjust the pattern to show more of the selvedges next time. I really like the look, and feel very thrifty using them.

And the bottom.

It just needs a little something on the zipper, and then it can go to it's new home.

It's been terrible weather today, but thankfully no bushfires in our area. My thoughts are with those in fire affected areas.

Take care,
Susan x

  28. Your selvedge bag looks gorgeous, definitely a great project to make use of all those cute bits. I have been tempted lately to use some of the selvedge's I have been saving and this blog is definitely to blame http://selvageblog.blogspot.com.au/ because I "need" a pencil case!
