I accidentally bought waaaaay to much chalkboard fabric.  Originally my mom wanted it to do an activity book for my nieces when they were in the car.  She mentioned that she wanted to make some for the craft fair my nieces' school has every year so I ordered four yards on line.  Yeah, well, what I didn't read in the description is the fabric width is 60 inches!!!! (once again, I repeat my motto "don't drink wine and go on line"!)

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with this excess chalkboard fabric?  ANY ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I don't really know what chalkboard fabric is like... is it flexible like apparel fabrics?  Or what...

if it's flexible-- it'd be neat to use it as part of an applique on a shirt or something

how cool would a shirt be!!!!!!!!! What a great idea!!!!!!!!!
OOpps way to excited... anyway I made little chalkboards that fit inside school lockers with magnetic tape on the back to stick them up then used scrap fabric to make a little pocket at the bottom to hold chalk-probably like the travel books you already made I imagine.
