New Techniques!

A good friend my mine Nadine was kind enough to send me pictures of what she has done using
selvages- you know those little maker marks on the very edge of fabric,The above picture is how she used the selvages on her own T-shirt.Pretty cool isn't! I love it!
Nadine sent me the place where she had seen the project ideas.
Below are picture from the "The Big selvages Project"

Jodie is a very out standing creative person!Here she has taken the selvages and created pillow!Jodie has taken selvages created a bagJodie has taken selvages magnificent full dress!wow!

What fun it would be to wear this dress!
I was thinking if we saved our selvages what different and awesome Pinkeeps or Aprons or Doll Quilts or clothes for our dolls we could make! Start saving those selvages!! ugh I just cut and through away about 12 selvages ..That day day of throwing away selvages is over for sure! Also on Jodies blog be sure to check out her
The Evolution of a teacup - series..scroll down to bottom of the about becoming a pinkeep WOW!

Amazing dress! Wow!
Could you possibly tell me how to create a button that opens a separate page for the blogs I visit like you have on your sidebar? I would love to know how to do that.
