yummy selvages and strings

This is Brenda from scraps and strings with my 15 minute update. I'm making a set of summer placemats using wide selvages. A little bit of fun sewing while hanging out in the AC to beat the summer heat.

Fun placemats! Are those STILL some of my scraps in there? Boy they do go a long way don't they!
how many will you make?

I think only four in this colourway, since most of the good selvages are done. but I'm making a matching tea cozy too!

I have never done anything with selvedges. I had a friend who was making a quilt, so I sent her mine, but looks fun to do.
