For a few years I have come across some projects made with the selvage of the fabric. So I decided to keep them, instead of throwing them away. I already had a few when in the Mc Calls magazine I saw the cutest tote made with selvages by Karen Neary visit her Blog at . As soon as I saw the Tote I knew I had to do it. So I put everything aside and made the tote during the weekend. Here are some pictures for you to see.

Thanks Karen for such a wonderful design.


  1. Marie - that's wonderful! It looks sew much like my original; did you use Fairy Frost for the accent?
