I have an out of control selvage stash. They are in bags and boxes and overflowing but in no order and a real mess. I decided I need to get them sorted in some way and decided that color would be the best choice. I have a bunch of large handled paper bags and decided to use these to sort into.
I have tied a colored selvage to each bag handle to represent the color that is in the bag. Every time I go into the sewing room I grab a handful of selvages and sort them. All the selvages going in the bags have writing or dots on them. I have another bag where I am putting all the selvages that don’t have writing on them. I will probably throw them away but right now I can’t seem to make myself do that. I might be able to think of another use for them.
It is going to take a long time to get all the selvages sorted but I think it will be worthwhile in the long run. I think I want to make a selvage color block quilt of some sort.
