Today we received a lot of polyester fabric for our church mission sale. People that sew said that they did not think people will buy it. I said Why don't we make something to sell or give away to use the fabric for good. Welllllllll...do not know what to do with it . Searched the net.  Purses, pillows, do not know how to use it
Any help would be so appreciated

Not many sewers do like to use polyester because it is such a thick sweaty, and can be difficult to sew. The first thing I can think of is tearing it into strips, and using it to crochet rugs, but I don't know how that would feel under the feet.. Maybe crochet just a little bit and step on it.

Here are a few things I found on Craftster made from polyester

Poly is warm.
Make coats or blankets for the homeless.
