Selvedge pouch

So I couldn't really go to QuiltCon without making at least one thing to take with me.


I needed something to put all my class gear in, so I stitched some selvedges I saved onto a muslin background and then used the pieces to put together this pouch.  It's a variation on the noodle-head open wide pouch that I always use - I just didn't box the corners.


I quilted the panels onto regular batting, using Aurifil 28 weight thread on the top.  I love the way the heavier thread has resulted in really nice defined stitches.  I like making pouches this way because they feel soft and a bit more protective, but I don't have to much around with interfacing (which I kind of hate).

I have a box of selvedge strips and this looks like a great way to show them off.

This looks really cute, could do with something similar for the all the notions I seem to gather around the sewing machine. Enjoy your trip - looking forward to reading all about it!

*gasp* that! That is what I need to do with my selvage! What a beautiful use of selvage and your quilting really pops on it especially on the bottom. What is that on the bottom BTW, is it Essex linen cotton?
