Hey all,

I bought this fabric a while ago not knowing exactly what I was going to do with it. Months later, I still have no idea what to make with it. From far away, or when it's draped the fabric doesn't look like bloody handprints, and I don't want something I can only wear on Halloween.

Any suggestions?
Patterns, ideas, anything would really help!

Personally I would make a skirt out of it, because I enjoy having everyday wear that is rather weird (plus I am a little gothy) But if that is not your style you could make it into a lining for something so only you could see it.

oh how I would love to see that as a part of a zombie quilt! Cheesy
maybe accessories rather than one large item? the lining of a messenger bag for instance or i'd like it as a pair of short pj trousers and sleeveless top
I hope you post whatever you do with it though!

Thanks guys! A skirt sounds interesting. Are there any patterns in specific? And any thoughts about shirts or dresses?

What about a very simple blouse like the Sorbetto? There's instructions somewhere around the interwebs for eliminating the front pleat (maybe even on the Colette website somewhere) so you can really keep the focus on the fabric.

If you've got enough fabric, some iteration of a circle skirt could be really cool. The drapes will make it look really artsy from a distance, and you won't realize it's gory hand prints until you're right up close Cheesy
