I’m so pleased my selvedge bag is finished – now I can cross it off my list. I had the top bands to complete, and the lining to sew in to the bag body. It always seems strange to stitch the lining and the body of the bag together around the top edge, then turn it right sides out through an unstitched portion of the lining. But this method works, just like magic, it seems. With a good press, some top stitching, and a little hand sewing to complete that partial seam in the lining, the bag was finally done.
Selvedge bag is now finished
The design, “Spring Fiesta” was from the magazine Simply Patchwork and Stitching, Vol 10 No 3, and was shown in the magazine made from bright floral squares. I stitched a nice little collection of small selvedge squares to make my bag with. Then tucked them away with the magazine and forgot about them for a while.
