This one is so cool
I've been home all week with the kids for spring break. I managed to get one project done and another one almost there. This finished project is one I have had bouncing in my head for a while. It started with this for inspiration.
Love this purse.
So I was thinking, selvegded edges would make a cool redo of this purse. I think I might have enough selvedges to do this. The problem, the more I thought of it was that different fabrics have different widths of selvedges(which could look sloppy). If I had enough of the same size, it could look good. But I don't. So I can't let and idea go to waste. So here is what I did instead.
I painstakingly made all of the fringe. It wasn't really that bad. I just made WOF strips and I got about 8 pieces of fringe out of each. But It did take quite a bit of fabric. There is 2 full yards on the exterior fabric/fringe alone! I only had a little piece left!
I cut each strip 2 inches and double folded ending up with a half inch strip. I did an experiment and tried a one inch cut strip that would give 1/4 inchstrip, but decided I was to impatient for that(although I would look great)I fray checked all the ends so not to unravel on me:)
What do you think? To much? I'm kinda liking how it turned out. I'm just scared I will get it dirty if I use it, haha. (kinda defeats the purpose)
I am really on a bag roll lately. I hope to get back to making some quilts soon, but for now, I have a few more bags to make. Well, I better, at least, since I already bought supplies.
Have a great Easter!!!
