My dad brought this home from work at the Post Office and figured I could do something with it.  There is about 5 yards altogether.  One piece is about the right size for me to make a snazzy belt, but no clue what to do with the rest of it?  The material is like a thick ... vinyl and webbing?  Who knows, but its real tough.  Purse maybe?  Don't think my sewing machine would go through it though.  Ideas?  Thanks!!

Strapping for a chair? A small mat? Dunno, that's a tough one!:)

You could weave something sturdy with it. A market basket maybe?

How about sewing in the top "hem" of those pincushion/scrapbags to hold the scrapbag open? (I use strapping from newspaper bundles in mine). 
Or, would it work for corset stays?  I saw a post by a Craftster that used zip ties for stays...  your stuff looks pretty flexible, though, so it might not hold its shape well enough. 
Good luck, and don't forget to post pictures of how you use it.
