k so ive had this fabric for about a year or more and i have ZERO idea to do with it. what these fabrics are all about 1 1/2 yrds- 2yrds. What should i make with them??
I was thinking making little bows for hair accessories but im not sure it they will make the fabrics justice. should i make bows and something else with it as well?? Or scratch the bow idea and go full on with something else?? what would you do?? Mind you really cannot sew very well.
any ideas or suggestions???

This is a stretchy cotton/spandex blend fabric:



This is a fine cotton/Spandex blend fabric (very fine and soft to the touch):


Lastly, this fabric is a stretchy black lace:

The yellow one would look lovely as an apron, but I'm not sure how well stretchy fabric would work as one.

The bottom one screams I am a cushion to me...but that's just my way of hearing it. You could have a manly/girly cushion, with the blue fabric trimmed with lace, it would look really cute.

I think the striped one would make a cute top, and the blue plaid would be cute little shorts.  There are some terrific tutorials on the clothing board that are pretty easy to follow, you ought to check them out!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371666.0

I see the yellow striped fabric as being a beach-y.  Maybe some sort of cover-up.  A wrap around skirt or something?  And it's hard to tell, but it almost looks like the ends already have some sort of finish of them.

I think I would make a scarf out of the blue plaid fabric.  Especially since you said it's really soft.

As for the lace...personally I would add it to the bottom of a couple of my tanks because my tank tops don't cover everything they used to. 

Good luck!  I'd love to see what you decide to make with these fabrics.
