2014 My Year of the Selvedge

For two going on three years I have been saving my selvedge edges.  First I made cell phone holders, wallets and cosmetic travel bags, and 50 potholders for friends and family.  In May 2013, I saw a dress made at International Sewing market in Portland and inspiration struck! (Scroll down to see a picture.)

I wore my selvedge outfit in the October 2013 Trashion Show - what fun!

Now to work on a "trashy" outfit for the show in October 2014!

The highlight of market for me was this dress made from the selvedges.
