This is brilliant! Becca of Bryan House Quilts made quilt binding from fabric selvages for a recent project. This photo shows the selvages sewn together as a solid piece. From this she cuts the strips, then tucks, sews, folds and finally makes a roll. She explains:

It’s like a fabric lolly pop, ya’ll!
The resulting binding on her mini quilt is quite interesting. Love it! Go HERE to get the know-how.
