Selvage Wristlet

Here's my first project made from selvages. Short selvage strips make this basic wristlet, a design which I love to use as an organizer when I carry a large tote bag.

The front and the back of the wristlet are made entirely of selvage and quilting cotton for the lining and strap.
The hardest part in making this simple project was deciding which colour of zipper to use! Now I have found another reason to feed my fabric stash... for the desire to have more selvages to sew with. ;o)

  1. I’m totally in love with the selvage wristlet! Too cute!
    I’m always in trouble sewing zippers into pouches... and new fabrics, you can’t do without!

  2. I've been saving selvages, too, but I still don't know how to put them together. Do you use fusible only, or you sew it together? Sorry about this dumb question!...

  3. You need a reason to collect fabric? I think I've been doing it wrong! (Love the wristlet. I have that quilting cotton at my house.)

  4. Neat project. I feel bad now because I always throw my selvages away. Now I am going to have to save them.

  5. Oh how sweet! I have been saving mine to do something with as well...I think I may have to continue to wait on that one for now.

  6. Well, I wondered what on earth you could do with those selvage bits. Now I know. Leave it to you to make something so lovely out of...dare I say, nothing?

  7. I love it! A great use of selvages I have to say. Does the strap hook inside your larger bag? That is a great idea! I can never find in my bag!
