I think this is a lovely piece of fabric that I wouldn't want to cut up and then run the risk of messing it up. I would think about making it curtains for a window, or a long body pillow for your bed or something like that. It's such a great find!

I think I would just hang it up. Maybe add some real twigs for texture, but it's lovely all on its own. It would be great in a stairwell if you have one.

Send it to me Wink  Joking of course.  Great find.  I'd hang it, window, wall, whatever.  If you don't have anywhere right now, put it away till you do.  DON'T CUT IT!!!
