I'll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours...


Karen Griska, creator of Selvage Blog, asked her readers to send her photos of their selvage stashes. I'm looking forward to seeing how others organize theirs.

Here is what mine look like...

Right now I just have them in 3 clear bags...one contains Christmas selvages, one contains short (less than 18 inches) pieces and the biggest contains selvages that are longer than 18 inches.

This adds up to 3.25 pounds of selvages that I currently have at my disposal.

I did a quick calculation and came up with a ballpark figure of about 100 yards (!) of selvages that have been used in my various projects. Yikes, somebody had to buy 100 yards of fabric to get me those selvages...

And I have...none. Unless there's a couple on the bottom of a yard or two of fabric. LOL.

Those bags look like hours of fun for you.
