I’ve gotten a couple of questions about saving selvages, so here are the answers.
1. Do you save both selvages, or only the printed ones?
I save only the printed ones, but I have read that some people save both.
2. How wide do you cut them?
I cut mine 1.5″ wide, because that’s what the Selvage Queen Karen Griska recommends. I find it works great. I measure 1.5″ from the finished selvage edge.
Another note: I saw fabric recently with a Mexican theme, and the little color windows were all shaped like tiny Mexican hats! Imagine how much fun we’ll have if fabric companies start making their selvages with artistic considerations!
