Saturday Selvage

For those who don’t know what a selvage is, I will explain. It is the bound edge of fabric. In the weaving process of fabric, the crosswise thread, or the weft, is turned around the edges. This is the selvage edge.

In the last few years it has become very popular to decorate these edges in addition to putting the colorway dots on them. I have fallen in love with selvages! So much so that I have actually bought fabric just for the selvage.

Here is today’s pretty selvage.

    • And sometimes prettier! Have you bought fabric just for the selvage?
      It becomes an addiction. I would say I need an intervention but I really love my attraction to selvages. What I really need is more storage space for all of them!!!


    • Oh dear! I’ve created another addict! But I do so love having fellow collectors! Especially you, my sweetie!
