i have the most fabulously happy fabric!   Cheesy
i saved it from my mom. She was going to throw it away! *gasp* i can't believe her!
yes so i took my seam ripper (used to be sheets and shams) and now i just have a few yards of this awesome fabric.

Pictures to demonstrate awesomeness:





it's not as dark as in the pictures. pretty much primary color brightness.
and i thought maybe it could make like a cool high waisted skirt or something!
except its FLANNEL! which could work i guess... i'm not 100% convinced as of yet though. and maybe that would look too little kidish?

does anyone think it has potential as any sort of clothing? besides pajama bottoms? if not then i'll certainly turn it into some. but i was hoping for something more exciting!!

ideas?

Thank you!!

It would make a really cute bag/purse...but that's not really clothing.

I'm just thinking: dress! Flannel dresses are DELICIOUSLY COMFY, and it'd be really nice for when you want to be cute and summery but still warm. Ooh, maybe with some colorful covered buttons =o Oh, and a red waistband!

it occurs to me that flannel is absorbent like terry cloth... and considering the print...

maybe you could make something summery-beachy out of it?
like... a skirt [ETA: reading person before me: or a sleevless tunic dress!!] that doubles as a bathing-suit cover-up.

i don't know if this is a loopy idea or not, but i thought i would just throw it out there.

since it's flannel i don't know if it would be the best fabric choice for a dress, that fabric is so flippin' fantastic though!   maybe a skirt to wear in the late fall when you wish all teh flowers were blooming?!

a bag would be great.....

i've never had a flannel dress! but it does actually sound pretty comfy to me! that sounds like it may be it! or a skirt. i am a total summer person and live in my bathing suit haha

i would make a bag but seeing as how i have about 5 million bags i wanted to make something else.

thank you all for your suggestions! when i get around to making something i'll post it! Cheesy

I have a flannel dress myself that I made, and I find it really lovely. It's so comfy and warm. The only thing is that it tends to wrinke a little.

I'll be watching for your post to see what you make! n_n

Make a half-sleeve or long sleeve shirt to brighten up your cold weather days!
Maybe with a collar that ties into a bow at the neck, or something, or ruffles around the sleeves at your elbows.

oh thank you for the new suggestions! i love half sleeves! but do you think the pattern would be too much for a dress with half sleeves?

i have been looking at tulip skirts and skirts with paper bag waists and i was thinking if i do a skirt maybe something similar to the one below?

http://www.eluxury.com/estore/browse/product_detail.jsp?SiteID=q5QZHUbCIj8-AeWgDwclhRwTPbYqNmIZyw&id=11740936

i think it would flow somewhat the same?

heranje: i would like to see a photo if you have one of your flannel dress? if its not too much to ask... i'm really liking that idea! if you don't want to go to the trouble to post one though thats okay too!

No, that's no problem at all. n_n I actually posted it on Craftster.

Here is the topic. I'm afraid the pictures don't really do it justice though - damned crappy webcam!
