Free Pattern Features: Selvages! + Winner

I’ve been seeing bags of selvages up for grabs in contents and in online shops and I’ve been wondering what people do with all those selvages. Here’s just a few ideas, but there’s tons out there! This is a great way to use every scrap of fabric you can. I’ve included just a few ideas here but you can find even more inspiration at Selvage Blog.

Fussy Cut shares this fun version of a mug rug/potholder. What a great gift for someone who loves to sew and cook!
