  1. Wow. Amazing that such pretties could come from what most people toss away.

  2. i have a soft spot for selvedge projects. i have seen some amazing things made with them. i’ve thought about trying to incorporate selvedge strips with “alabama stitch” projects/techniques…the two seem to go together.

  3. Wow, I had no clue that such large piece can be made from such skinny strips that are usually thrown out! Love it!

  4. one (wo)man’s trash is another (wo)man’s treasure.

  5. I love the things that Jodie did with selvedge! It’s amazing what creativity can come out of something so small

  6. I can’t imagine sewing something so tiny, but I like the look. Really a neat idea.

  7. Love the Gauguin quote.

  8. I love that dress! Love it!…..I’d have never ever thought to sew something with the selvedges! Thanks for sharing!
    love,
    sara

  9. well, that selvedge chair is certainly handsome and witty!
