Ever see some really awesome fabric, buy it, and then have no clue what to make with it?

I've had these two fabrics lying around for ages and don't know what to do with them... any thoughts?

If anyone else has some fabric they need ideas for, feel free to share!

I have 1 1/2 yards of this fabric:

I have 3 yards of this fabric:


What would YOU do with them? I sifted through tons of patterns and I'm still uninspired  Cry.

The top one would make a a really cool wall quilt.  I love the tree fabric, I'll have to think about it for a while.

those are awesome fabrics! I think the first one would make an awesome skirt or tote bag! PJ pants jump to mind for the trees. Or, if you garden, maybe some kind of garden tool bag? I dunno, but those are great. What lucky finds!

the tree fabric would make a super nifty garden tote.  use it for toting garden sheers, gloves, whatever.

the first one would make good throw pillows or a purse or bag.  I don't know about the tree fabric.

i think if you are VERY careful, you could get some sort of blazer. it might have to be a 3/4 length sleeve though, and fitted.

I love the tree fabric.  Do you remember where you bought it?

I think it would make a good work apron, either for cooking or working outside.

for the red one, i think some type of shirt, maybe a halter top, would be cool. or a belt, though the print seems a little big for it. maybe a wide belt? the tree one strikes me as a great lining for bags.

i have all kinds of fabrics that i buy and don't know what to do with. usually i leave them sitting in my stash, forget about them, and rediscover the perfect one when i'm digging for a project!

but here's one i would like some suggestions for:



it's a scrap. there is one continuous pillowcase-sized part and then some long strips that are about 8" wide. so i have to make some smallish things! any ideas?

That might be just enough fabric to make a waist apron.  I like using them with skirts that don't have pockets if I'm doing something crafty.  I also use one whenever I'm a vendor at a craft fair.

I lurve aprons.
