I've also seen where people would use the selvage edges with the dots to make corn stalks on their quilts.  Pretty cool idea.

I've always wondered about using the selvages, it does seem such a waste to throw them all away!  I love the way they pop on the quilt.  Thanks for sharing your great projects and ideas!

Wonderful stuff.  I especially like the bowl. 
I have another use for those selvages, you can tie or stitch them together and crochet (or knit) with them.  You can make place mats, coasters purses, rag rugs, hats, or whatever.

I never thought to keep those edges.  Sure will now.  I would like to know how to make the basket.  I like it alot.

Awesome!  This appeals to me on a lot of levels.  I've always loved the colour dots on selvages and the "designer labels".  Recently I stopped throwing away all the scraps created on my rotary mat because they have such a nice texture--I've been thinking I could reuse them somehow, maybe as stuffing... Now that I've seen your chicken, I think there are some selvage pincushions in my future!  Great job and thanks for the inspiration.

I got my new Hancock's catalog yesterday, and they are selling bags of scraps with a price per 1/2lb.  The catalog description mentions that they are selvage edges, but the online description is a bit vague.  Maybe someone can benefit from it.  :-)  So far, I saw Moda and Robert Kaufman varieties.

I've got a handful of vintage patterns up for trade/swap (1950s/60s): Monograms, embellished bags, men's robe, lace work, spats/bags, bell bottom, mod dress.  PM if interested.
