I found these beautiful Marimekko fabrics at a Crate and Barrel outlet close to where I live. The best part was that they have a scratch bin of remnants that they sell for $1/lb! I'm not sure what to do with them. Any ideas? The pieces are on average 20inch squares, though some are bigger.


I have a deathly affinity for the cute!

I love using fun cotton prints for pocket linings and as waistband curtains!

I think you need to choose projects that highlight the large prints on these beautiful fabrics.

Notebook covers
Cosmetic bags - with contrasting zippers!
Backs for small art quilts
Hot pads

I'd make clutches out of them, and matching coin purses from the bigger pieces. You could also patch them together and make bigger bags.

These are some really nice prints. I never heard of marimekko before.
