What we did with my grandma's towels was turn them into plastic bag holders that we wouldnt mind leaving out.. sew them into a tube and add elastic to the bottom. Or add a decorative top to tie to the cupboard doors as a handtowel.  That keeps it on display more.

What I did, because I wanted curtains and can't put holes in the wall, is you take a dowel or whatever, can paint it however and add decorations to the end of it, and either drill through it and thread a ribbon through it, or add closed hooks to the end. Add your curtains to that and hang it on command hooks! the best inventions ever! we use them for everything! Smiley

It was really easy!! I'm still sewing even though I should head to bed, and I've gotten all three tiers of this one planned out and pinned.  So hopefully tomorrow I'll sit and sew it together!!

I hate wearing shorts in the summer and love skirts.  In my fabric box I had a ton of squares I cut a long time ago when I was going to make a quilt with my sister for my new apartment.  Ambition failed.  But they went to a good use!! I made a pink themed patchwork skirt and am starting on a second in blues and greens (really excited for this one!)  The worst part was the gathering of the layers by hand to attach it. OMG it took forever!! 
Hope you like it!

In action and before hemming and some touchups (I got excited lol):

Was there a certain pattern you used or did you freehand it?  I really like it and want to try making it!

Haha LOVE the fabric, bought the same kind and made similar bags.  My black with pink polka dot bag had an ambitious pocket which i HATED once i started. a heart shaped pocket. it's so hard to get courderoy to do a nice curved edge!

Thanks!  I was searching all over for ideas last night and I'm thinking of doing a dress like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208335.0 for the blue/green and then a small purse with the other and using the border lace (I cant remember the name of it) to cover the edges on both sides so i can use it both ways and use the fabric to its best!
And to think, I only paid $1.25 for both.... I LOVE WALMART!

I have a couple fabrics and few ideas of what to do with them.  one is a blue/green bright pattern which i'm considering doing a dress out of, but not sure what kind.  the fabric i have is  60" by 1 1/2 yds.

Also I have a really awesome reversible butterfly brocade, but unfortunately it is only 45" y 1/2 yd.  Any ideas??

Feel like helping me brainstorm?
