I have a garbage bag full of various drapery lining remnants. Anywhere from Rain no Stain, Thermosuede, and Blackout. I have pieces that are under a yard, some are well over, and some are even 2 or so. Besides the obvious use for this fabric, what else can be done with it? I have tried my good pal Google, but came up with nothing. My mind is fried from working 2 jobs and cannot come up with a single thing. So, what would you use it for?


I have a ton of NEW sewing patterns to swap. What do you have?

Tote bags / grocery bags.  If the pieces aren't big enough use the lining as reinforcement for the bottom of a bag made of something else.

Lots of possibilities....As I'm out in the yard doing garden & outdoor deck/patio stuff,
these ideas come to mind:

maybe for the big pieces you could make a patio canopy or shade sails to diffuse the bright sun

for the smaller pieces you could make garden flags and banners

our deck is a bit windy. I was thinking of pieces of fabric the same height as the
railing (36") with eyelets. Then use rope and loop it thru the eyelets and up over
the railing again & again. sort of a nautical look.


I've reupholstered my husband's favourite recliner chair using drapery fabric-
it's thick & durable, comes in easy to cut flat panels, and waaaay cheaper.

while on that topic, how about throw pillows?

and finally, a tablecloth, or runner.

whatever you do, have fun!
