Fun With Selvages

I started my fun sewing this weekend working with my ever-growing pile of selvage strips - time to try to tame that pile of scrappy goodness! 

First I used a bunch of blue strips to make a fun journal cover - I'll have to make some more of these in different colors! 

Then I worked on a couple of Mini Selvage Bins.  It's been a while since I made any, and I had to refresh myself on the measurements, but once I did that I was in the groove.  First I made a soft green one...
Then a saucy red and black version:
These are super handy for sitting on your desk and filling with odds and ends!  I actually keep one on my cutting table and use it to hold the selvages I cut off of yardage.  They are really cute to hang on a wall, too!
If you would like to make your own, you can buy the pattern from my Etsy shop:

Hope your week has started off well!
