My friend Jean did a post about selvages a couple of weeks ago. I started playing with this technique and I came up with a strip. I really did not know what to make with it so I just let it sit there until the inspiration hit me. Well this weekend I am off to the beach and I needed a bag for my beach toiletries. So to add spunk to the bag I machine embroidered a mermaid and a beach ball on to the selvage strip and made myself a beach bag. Thanks Jean, this is recycling at its best!
