If you need some inspiration, here's a look at my work in progress!
A few tips I've learned working with selvedges:
- If you want a bit of the fabric to show, make sure you include at least .5" of it above the selvedge when you cut the selvedge off your fabric.
- Use LOTS of pins* (the strips like to wander about when you're sewing them down).
- A zigzag stitch covers a multitude of sins!
*I akin this to my grandmother's stalwart motto "use more tape", especially on Christmas gifts. Fort Knox had NOTHING on her.
Can't wait to see everyone's project at the Guild meeting on the 18th!
