1. Giant floor pillows to lounge on (very hippie)
2. Re-cover chair cushions
3. Decorate a wall
4. Cut into strips and knit with it
5. Make into a drape/tablecloth for an ugly coffee table/end table/nightstand
6. A bajillion potholders
7. Curtain/room divider
8. Replacement for the seat/back of a folding director's chair
9. Cut into strips and crochet a rug
10. Buy batting and make a simple quilt/picnic blanket

I love my dictionary.

1. Curtains (you could line them with backing fabric from the drapery section of a fabric store if you're worried about sun rot)
2. Sheets
3. Wall hangings 
4. If it's thick enough, an afghan for chilly nights
5. A canopy or some sort of drapery for your bed

I'm out of ideas, but I'd love to see what you make with the fabric!

ooh, I've seen those curtains. Actually they are often sheer, so you can put photos, flowers, and other dodads inside! Maybe do a sheer overlay on your tiedyed curtains! That would be cute. And with the extra fabric you could buy some fleece in a matching shade to make one of those awesome knotted edge throws. Super warm and cozy. I love mine!
