Make a Selvage Bag Instructions

¡Hola! ¿Cómo es usted? 
The Aerika Selvage Edge Bag is a REAL HIT!!!!
How do you like it...??? 
Wanna make your own Selvage Edge Purse...????
It is easy and FUN fun FUN!!!!
Here we go:

Some simple instructions on how to make your own selvage bag....

Isn't it so fun to make something out of something we would normally discard? I think so!
  • Save your selvage edges {or just cut them off the collection of fabrics you already have}

  • Cut 1/2 inch into the print of the fabric. {some people do more, I like to be consistent and do 1/2 inch each time}

  • Cut your purse pattern pieces out of white cotton
  • {use the FREE Aerika Pattern, available from CrystelleBoutique....!!!!,or your own favorite pattern}
  • Draw parallel lines on the cotton to keep you going straight as you go along
  •  Place one strip of selvage edge on at a time, and sew it in place
    • Be sure to overlap the unfinished edge of the previous selvage edge with the finished edge of the current one
    Not bad, is it?
    You can SO do this!!!!

    • I really love the way it turns out. See another view right here
    • This is a very green, reused, recycled, re-purposed {all that good stuff..... :) } project for you and your friends and kids to do
    • I used the free Aerika Purse Pattern {a Crystelle Boutique original creation} to make this selvage edge bag....
    The Poppie Flower is WAY cute too!!!!  Instructions on how to make it are right here

    Have fun cutting and sewing!
