I made these 12x12 squares from my collection of selvages last summer,
but haven't been able to decide what to do with them.
Then I had an ah-ha moment.
I was trying to think of something pretty and unique to make for an upcoming special day for somebody and I thought to myself, "self, why not make a cute bag out of those selvage squares."
So I did.
The whole bag is made of scraps of fabric.
I used flannel from thrifted sheets to sew the selvages to and then a piece of interfacing that my neighbor gave me that was going to get thrown out to add a little extra stiffness to the bag.
I used the rest of the pillowcase from the 2 pillowcase dresses that I made on my previous post for the drawstring part of the bag.
The flower is my first attempt at making a fabric rose. I used a yo-yo from my stash of yo-yo's to put behind the rose for a little extra pop of color and I also added a pin backing so the flower can be removed.
I really LOVED this bag and hope that the someone
special that I'm giving it to likes it as much as I do!
