maybe this topic goes here?? (sorry for posting twice)

so today i bought 2.5 yards of this really great fabric...  it's cream with little light aqua polkadots and even tinier black polkadots. 

when i found it i was like YES!!! this is the exact color scheme i've been wanting to make my room!

but now the question is what should i make with the fabric, like a few different things to tie the room all in together matchy-match like.

i was thinking curtains (i only have one window), a pillowcase...

any other ideas??

You could use some of it to cover lightswitch and outlet plates too.

Buy one of those peel and stick lampshades and apply the fabric to that.  Even if it's just one of the small "nightlight" shades.

Thanks for all the great ideas!!

Yeah, I saw something about those lampshades on HGTV. 
Do you know where I can buy one?
