Sunday Quilt Inspiration: SELVAGES

Uhm, on Monday? Sorry all. We had a thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, so no internet until, well actually, I don't know. Then this morning I had a doctor's appointment so I'm quite late in getting this post out. My apologies.
The exact selvage pieces offered in the giveaway.
Since I've been offering a giveaway of a bag of selvages, I thought I'd offer a few ideas of how to use them. I may have done this before, but it's such a popular item on Pinterest that there are lots of new projects, so hopefully I'm not repeating any. 
SELVAGE Christmas Ornaments Little Holiday Birds to Brighten your Tree. Love that the hanger comes down to be feet.

Sweet merciful heaven - this zippy isn't made with selvages, it's made with SELVAGE FABRIC that someone designed and had printed out @ Spoonflower!  I think I've died (dyed!) and gone to heaven, lol!:

I hope this inspires you to start saving and using those selvages. There are many more ideas on my "selvage, projects" board.  And don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a bag of selvages. Not many people have commented, so you'd have a pretty decent chance of winning. I'll sent them where ever you are.  I'll announce the winner tomorrow.
