If you know a knitter or crocheter, they might be able to cut it into strips and knit you a washcloth, or bath mat....

I totally second the underwear idea. Super comfy.

I guess that makes me wonder how you avoid bitey/grabey elastic. I had some underwear that my grandma made for me when I was a girl and I avoided wearing them like they were the plague, because they had really bitey elastic. I recent modified a bra I had bought that was a good fit, but the seams were bitey. (I stitched in a line of fleece over the seam.) What leads to that? Does anyone know? Has anyone tried using the elastic collars of t-shirts as the elastic in a stitched item?

I have 3 yards of this pink sheerish fabric, it is very slinky and pretty. I need to do something with it, amybe a few smaller things or one big thing. I got it from a friend and it takes up a ton of space, I'll try to post a picture later right now it won't work

Small pieces of t shirt fabric are useful for making hairbands (either this kind: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutorial-sew-a-fabric-headband/2009/03/19/ or scrunchie-type ones)

Was the elastic against your skin?  That can be corrected by making a casing for the elastic.  If the elastic was in casing then maybe gramma used less elastic than what you needed?

The underwear I've been buying lately is t-shirt type material and a casing at the top with enclosed elastic rather than the cheapie undies that have the fancy elastic sewn to the top of the fabric.

As I recall, it was stretchy near lace. It was kinda decorative, but not really lace.

you could cut the t-shirts into strips and make a braided t-shirt rug to complement your quilt.
