Sewing with Selvages
I came up with a different way of sewing selvages to create all kinds of items. My way is different than anything I have seen before online and it's so much easier to sew it my way too.
I start you off by showing you how to sew fabric selvages to create a mug rug to get the concept of sewing selvages my way. I show you 4 ways to sew the selvages: horizontal, vertical, diagonal and double diagonal. Then I show you 3 ways to finish your mug rug.
Moving on I will show you how to make a small fabric basket that is loaded with several of my tips to give you a great looking basket. You can use these tips for bag making too, even without sewing selvages.

I love color and textiles and that is why I started making quilts, quilted wall hangings and then got hooked on making handbags and other bags. I sell my handbags on my blog too. I started a blog in 2008 to document everything that I make. I blog at https://www.patchouli-moon-studio.blogspot.com Please drop by and see what I create.
I have designed a few patterns in pdf format to sell here and I also offer a few free pdf patterns as well.
