Tote Your Selvages

I've been saving the selvage edges of some of my fabrics for awhile, note the overflowing basket on the right of tote bag. I finally decided it was time to attempt making something besides a Mug Rug with them…. Our county has banned the use of  plastic shopping bags. This tote will be put to good use! The pattern is from an older Oct. 2009 McCalls magazine I had kept,  or can also be purchased on Craftsy. Save your Selvages!
