I literaly have 300 plus Crown Royal bags. I need some ideas what to do with them. Some things I have come up with or seen are.

Quilts, i have one in progress.
Cup cozy, dice bag, travel shoe bags clothing etc. The mans thong i saw would make a great gag gift, but i need some more ideas.

Help, my husband works at a large casino and he keeps bringing them home.

Hello, I had an order years ago to make a lining for this man's leather jacket. So we worked with his lining which zipped in & out of the jacket. He was so pleased with it and he mentioned he was glad it zipped so he could take the lining out if he went to a bar or some place like that.
His dad was the one that drank Crown Royal, so we started him a quilt and of course I ran out of bags cuz he wanted a queen size that went to the floor. So I had just gotten my Janome Embroidery Machine and I embroidered the Crown Royal logo on the backs of the bags so I could have the extras I needed. It was so hard to find that color of thread though but the Janome store had it as their embroidery thread. I think it was # 270, Mustard Yellow back then. It just so happened that Walmart had that color in the 4" fringe, so I purchased all. He had a few of the velvet Special Crown Royal bags so we made pillow shams with fringe. It was great and very beautiful. And it was a good paying job!
I now have a bagful that I puchased from a yard sale and have the same problem as you... Don't know what to do with them. Not enough for a quilt!
What is funny is I tried to make fringe out of the strings from the bags.... that doesn't work either. What to do with all that string!

They string i throw away shame on me. You could use the string like a trim you would couch down around like on a pin cushion, or you could glue around old gift cards and make them into ornaments.

Reusable lunch bags? Well, maybe not for kids. Grin
I googled and came up with this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/15977210@N00/400023595/
We always used them to store chess pieces (they fit really well and are way classier than ziplocs), so if you have more than you can use, see if there's a chess club nearby that you can donate them to.
EDIT: My mother suggests storing silver in them.

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy

I once saw a guy in the French Quarter of New Orleans wearing a vest made of Crown Royal bags. Not as stylish as that dress in the link, but it took a lot fewer bags.

A few years ago I was invited to walk in a Mardi Gras parade, I thought to throw beads. What I was really there to do was to carry the end of the very, very long Crown Royal cape that was worn by one of the most fabulous gentlemen I've had the pleasure to meet. The cape is definitely a head-turning piece of apparel!

I made a handbag with them, and seen a tote bag made with them, too (but I'm obsessed with making bags).

If you make a thong, you could also make a matching bikini top!

Capes/costumes are my only other suggestion.
