I've been saving selvages for a few years and I've never done anything with them because I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with them.
If I save things and never use them then I feel like a hoarder especially when the boxes all start piling up around me. Two boxes of selvages fell over on me when I was hunting for something else in the sewing room so I figured it was time to empty the boxes.
I also came across a little pile of some sewing themed fabrics - also never figured out what to do with them. So I cut the sewing themed fabrics into 4.5 inch squares to use for the center of some selvage log cabins.
Light and dark selvages. It takes a lot to make a 12 inch block especially since I hardly left any fabric on most of the selvages when I cut them off. I only made four to see if I liked them. I do. So I see a big selvage quilt in my future.
Anything goes...civil war meets 30s meets novelties and florals.
There's a certain satisfaction that comes with using every little bit, wasting nothing, and making something useful.
Waste not, want not.
The really little itty bits of fabric go into my mulch and/or compost piles.
