I’d intended to sew some when we got home from dinner last night but after watching TV for a while, and then catching up on the computer I was tired – Keith had gone to bed hours earlier but I knew I wouldn’t sleep….so what did I do? Decided I should pull out those selvages I’d been saving and make some postcards. It was fun and I could have made more but I’m tired and I’m going to head to bed.
oh my, oh my, oh my!!! Waaay more than cute, cute, cute!!!>>I have been saving selvages for some time in the hopes of making a picnic quilt *someday*. Recently I decided not to do a whole big quilt and have decided to make smaller items: purses, ckbk and pocket calendar covers and etc. POSTCARDS!! I didn’t even think about postcards!!>>CUTE CUTE CUTE!>>Pam@>http://www.pamgwillim.com>email@example.com
Some more stuff I’m just going to have to copy.
I have to ditto what zizzybob wrote. Are these real postcards that can be mailed?
mary those are darling! i save selveges to use selectively on library blocks as title bars for book spines and thought i was the only one who thought they were useful. you’ve opened up a whole new door for me!
Very, very fun! I just made one of the airplane folders…first try not so good but I think I’ll do better on my next one.
These are really, really cute! What a cute idea. I saw someone use them in a smallish purse too.
What a cute Idea! I’ve made some postcards with clothing labels, but now you have me cutting off all my selvages! Thanks for sharing!
