Holy COW!!! what an awesome find!!!

Have you tried using a walking foot with the fabric? 

I'm starting to use mine more and more for thicker fabrics.

I love the stuff you've sewn already!!!

What a find!! What the hell was that guy doing with all that fabric in the first place???

This is a whacky idea but years ago you could buy these fuzzy snake things with micro-fiber on the bottom. When you pet them the micro-fiber would kind of stick and cause the snake to stand up. The only reason I thought of this was because my little neices and nephews asked for them for xmas this year. I made some - they were fast and easy and the kids had fun with them.

In my opinion, you can glue eyeballs onto any furry fabric and have a cute friend!! No matter what the shape or size Smiley.

well the story he gave us was that his wife used to be a nanny for a couple that owned a toy fabric business.  They ended up moving and had a whole truck load of fabrics that they didnt use or sell so they were just going to throw it away.  He took it, made himself a couple of 'pimp' coats and then ran out of ideas for the rest of it.  lol There was SOO much, his whole garage was full. and that was AFTER a day of people taking car loads. lol  I so wish I had of gotten there early enough to get some of the more crazy fabrics. He said there were bright yellow big birdish fabrics, and animal prints iin all different colours...

those snake things sound interesting.. I'll search the internet and see if I can find some refrence photos.

 How about some children's coats? Or animal-backpacks. Or, Loads of dog toys. Or, take it to the swap meet (Flea Market) if you have one,
Area rugs, line the walls of dog houses. Winter hats, lined of course.
Blankets for the homeless, mats for the homeless

I was thinking that If I could get good enough at making coats I'd love to make up a bunch and give em to the homeless, and Blankets as well.. 
We do have flea markets in the area, So I want to get a pile of different stuff made up and then take it there and see if I have any sucess selling it.  If I don't its not like I'd be out much money, I definatly have enough material to be able to make stuff to give away and make stuff to sell as well.. I have a bunch of stuffed animals I want to make.. I just need to find the time.  I have a 6 month old, and its seems that the only time she gets really cranky is right around the time I've been inspired to sew something.. lol go figure.

Wow!!!  Crazy find.

What about monster books?  They're pretty easy, no-sew projects, and they look great when they're done.  You're basically just adding a fabric cover to an existing book.  And I would definitely make some poppets, too.
