Little purse. "Waste not, want not" granny said. A sweet lady saved her selvedges for me. I made this for her....front and back.

That is so cute! Did you embroider the wee birds? It's amazing what we do with the things many people discard! Thanks for sharing this with us. Avis

Clever idea.
I have only ever kept them for tying things up,better than elastic bands which rot away.

I want to use them for book titles in a bookcase quilt. I will have to be selective. Thank you
