What has this bag got to do with Selvedge magazine?
I bought on ebay, the most monumental velvet curtain to cut down and recover the sofa cushions. Unpicking it I discovered that the material had originated from The Royal Ontario Museum. I was blown away with the selvedges and the faded unpicked seams which were too good to waste. On seeing my newly made shoulder bag Debs the teacher* at my soft furnishing class, said people make an art form of selvedges. Getting home I googled selvedge and up came Selvedge magazine. I instantly got where they were coming from. So much so, I've bought all the back-issues. They have gone into the cupboard together with all the other bits and bobs. I ration myself to reading one only very occasionally, otherwise I would totally o.d. The amazing talent people have is a tad unsettling. A bit like this blogging lark.
The bag does draw lots of comments, one guy even asked if he could stroke it. There's a chat-up line. At my time of life. I had to go and have a lie-down, it was all too much for me.
