As is usually the case when I go into a fabric store, I ended up buying something I didn't have an immediate need or idea for. As a result, I walked out of JoAnn's with one yard (at $3, mind you) of this:

The fabric already has a disclaimer that it shouldn't be made into children's sleepwear. And my friend Ean is a huge fan of polar bears, but I don't want to do something plain or boring. I want to make something fun out of this adorable fabric. I'd love any suggestions anyone might have.

That would be very cute for a denim rag quilt... since it is similar colors to various shades of used denim... think old jeans Smiley

Or baby burp cloths... or blankets Smiley

If you want to use it for baby sleepwear, I say go ahead.  The law requires that anything babies/kids sleep in needs to be flame retardant (which usually means being treated with chemicals).  I suspect most parents are like me and my husband and put the kids to sleep in any garment we have, treated or untreated.  If the baby will not be exposed to open flame, it doesn't matter; and babies should never be exposed to an open flame anyway!

i like the design on it, colors are good. you can make things to hold like cases or wrap around things, or even bags? first thing that came to my mine was a ottoman either clean edges or fringed(sewed inside out in a way so that the extra selvage can be cut after when it is done for fringe-y effect)
