I scored a piece of LOTERIA FABRIC (about 25" x 45", and some smaller scraps).  I know it is highly prized and I don't have a clue what I shoud do with it.  I hate for it to sit in my stash waitng for the right project to come along, it will grow old in there if I don't use it now. 

I need your help finding the right use for it, but keep in mind my sewing skills are pretty basic.  I can sew a staight line and am fairly crafty otherwise.

Thanks in advance for your help.

awesome!!!! I wish I could crochet.  My son is a counselor at a boy's camp and they have pirate day.  He would be the HIT OF CAMP in this.  Any interest in doing a private swap for one?

My first thought was a backpack mini first aid kit but someone else suggested it.  Could be used for a id container/emergency contacts as part of a personal safety lesson, the info could be hidden from view.  Use the paint pens to right ICE on the container (in case of emergency).

One of Martha Stewart's tv guest made a book this week.  get on-line to get the instructions if you need help.  You need to trim the corners before you fold up, creat a mitered corner.  I usa a PVA glue (aka book binding glue).  You will get great results.  Double sided tape isn't a good option since it's not completely flat and you will get odd wear patterns.  Does this make sense?

I had no idea that you  could cut on a band saw!  This would make it easy to "make" a picture!  My son was intrigued with them as well and went back over. He bought a huge box of 4x4 but not didn't have as many colors and bought some others that were some different shapes.  He teaches Indian Lore at a summer camp.  He might be able to use the ones that look like stone for projects there.  The crazy kid asked for and got a band saw for his 18th birthday.  Again,, thanks for all your suggestions!

lots of great ideas! I knew you could help me.  I paid $5 for them at Expo (the high end stores that Home Depot is closing).  I figured when I bought them something would come to mind.  I thought about drilling a hole in them to use as a pendant but they are a little heavy for that.  I too love to touch them...weird I know.  The first thing I did was sort them by color.  I think I'll go back as they had other brands avail but not as many as in this box.
Keep thinking for me!

I just got this box of 90 samples.  Esch one is 2" x 2".  The printing on them can be sanded off with no ill effects.  What in the world can I do with these?Huh I know you clever people can come up with a great idea.  Thanks.
