Selvedge...

Jodie over at Ric-Rac is the selvedge queen. She's been collecting pieces for a "big project", and making a couple little ones along the way...

A simple little square-selvedge purse...


A fantastic scarf I'm completely wishing I could get my hands on...


And the pièce de résistance... a gorgeous selvedge dress...

How will any of us ever throw that little "scrap" away again?!!

Wow!!!what a great idea...at first I did not understand and thought the images might be Japanese subway maps or something like that.
I will look at the selvedge edge differently from now on.
Thank you for your visit to my Halloween party...I hope you did not break any teeth ;)

Love your blog!
You find the neatest treasures.
I'm one of those crazy people who can't throw anything away - but unfortunately it means I have a hard time finding my floor.
