Made these little stationery cards by sewing bits of selvage edges on the sides of blank cards I had laying about. (well, they were left over from our wedding....five years ago!) But anyhow, I think it turned into something lovely!
I plan on using these little cards as gift notes when orders are sent directly to the recipient. Just this last week I was asked by a customer to write a message in French to be sent to his mum in France. Of course, I have no idea what it said, but I loved being (a small!) part of that gift giving experience.
I used to save fabric selvage edges to wrap up gifts & bundles of fabric....but my friend, Cindy began using selvage edges to create charming & clever pincushions. She has just opened a fantastic new shop, Sewing on the Edge, to showcase these lovelies. This inspired me to put selvages to better use. Mostly, I just send them to her.......but I think I'll save a few to make these cards.
