Anyone have any ideas for this awesome fabric I've been holding onto forever??? I already have a sewing machine cover or thats what I'd make out of it! I was leaning towards making a purse out of it because I love it sooo much but I thought that would be a little over the top! Any ideas would be appreciated!

I would make an apron...but that's because it's the next thing I'm buying fabric for.  It would make a cute knitting/crochet tote, definitely an adorable pincushion or needlebook cover, as well.  Depending on how much you have, you could do all three of those last ones, and have a set!

It's absolutely adorable fabric, too!

I know what you mean about loving the fabric and not knowing what to do with it  Grin  I have a few yards that i think i'm going to make into a craft bag out of, i do a lot of needlepoint in addition to everything else  Tongue I made a vest out of another remnant i have, maybe i'll get around to posting it someday   Smiley

That fabric is awesome! Maybe, if you think it's a little too much for a purse, use it on the inside of a purse...then you can still see it frequently.

You can give it to me!!!
 Just kidding.  That is such CUTE fabric.  I like the idea for a tote or the inside of a bag.  With the remnants, a coint purse or cosmetic bag for your next favorite crafter/kitty lover!

This is a lovely fabric and am not surprised you are holding on to it for the purr-fect project (sorry - couldn't resist  Grin).  However - it is a 'themed' fabric so to me it would be best to use it for that purpose.  You didn't say how much you have.  You could make another sewing machine cover or you could make a sewing/tote bag that you could keep by your sewing machine with your present working project in it.  Alternatively you could cover the lid of your sewing box with it or make a small zip purse to keep your sewing machine pieces in such as pins, tape measure, seam ripper, spare sewing machine feet and needles (as I have done myself).  This is my personal opinion anyway but hope I have given you some ideas at least.

When I make a mess something good always comes from it.
