Much Better

More digging through selvages unearthed this lucky find! "Linda" selvage! With apologies to fabric designer Linda Carlson, I used another bit of plain selvage to cover her last name. Then, keeping the word "style" I resewed the selvages and recovered the button that decorates the selvage purse you saw here
Did anyone else have success at finding their own name on a selvage? For those who commented on the selvage purse post, I found a Lynda (Lynda Milligan), and a Jennifer (Paganelli). Anyone else?

Oh too cool, well done. What a great idea.

What a great find for you. I never thought of covering buttons with the stitched together selvages. Good idea. Wonder if I'll ever find a Kerry.

I'd be able to find my (current) surname, but I doubt my first name... Kathy Schmitz is a designer and I have a sister-in-law by the same name, but not the same gal! ;->

And, Kerry, I am pretty sure I have some Kerry Beary fabric with your name and correct spelling on it...

Good find Linda, anything with Elyte on it?

Carrie P. said...

Now it is perfect. I don't think I will ever find my name on the selvage.

Micki said...

Now that is totally neat!

Great work Linda, looks fab, now to see if I can unearth a Julie!

Pokey said...

Well worth every bit of digging to find your name! I'm happy for you! :-}pokey

I am so glad you finally found one. Maybe the answer is to start designing fabric ourselves and then we can have our own name on the selvage. (Now that is a dream and never likely to happen for me.)

I've been surfing back through your blog. I saw your RRCB progress. Love that post where you said she must have elves come to decorate, bake, etc. I think when I turn the light out on those pieces at night they multiply. Love your selvage purses.
