How to Make Your Own Fabric Through Scraps {Selvedge}

In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through a fun way of how to make selvedge fabric.

This is an easy technique and a fun way to use up leftover bits of your fabric that you otherwise might throw away!

What Is Selvedge Fabric?

You see them on the edges of fabric you buy at a quilt shop depending on the cut you’ve bought.


I cut off the aesthetically pleasing side of the selvedge with about an inch of the fabric pattern as well, depending on the type of fabric.

Prepare Your Selvedge


I suggest taking a few minutes to come up with the order and placement of your selvedge strips.

Color Coordinated or Random?


Start with the selvedge edge (cut to your preference) and lay it down on your backing.
