A Use For Those Fleece Selvages

Remember those fleece selvages that I couldn't part with back a couple of weeks ago? If you need to refresh your memory, you can find the post HERE. Anyway...I found a use for them! The credit for this idea goes to my sister, who suggested making them into dust mop covers! Have you ever noticed how your fleece jammie pants attract every thread and pet hair within a 50 yard radius? Fleece is the logical material for dust mops, not those flimsy "specially treated" disposable dust cloths. This cover only took minutes to make and the rolled edges of the selvages are perfect for picking up and trapping those unruly dust bunnies! When you are finished cleaning the cover goes right into the washer and dryer and can be used over and over!

A basic "How To" for the Fleece Selvage Dust Mop Cover can be found HERE.

That is wayyy too clever! I think I'll make a big one for those large spaces. Much quieter than vacuuming too.

Brilliant!!!!

Oh you are such a clever cat Susan. I love that idea. I think you could also use them like an old fashioned mop style too. Wonderful. Ooo wonderfully coloured rag style dusters for things like spider webs. LOL Now you have set my little befuggled brain off when I was thinking of Christmas instead.

So did you sew the selvages to another piece of fleece? Brilliant idea.
