I was recently given about 200-300 yards of assorted nylon flag fabric.   Wow. 

This is like hitting the fabric lottery and I can't wait to create lots and lots of things.  
Beyond the obvious yard flags, I really don't know what to do with all this fabric. 

I am overwhelmed at best, but I do plan to keep it all.  

I also received about 200 yards of sequined trim.  Most of it is about 3"-4" wide and very stretchy.  I can't imagine using on anything but costumes, but I hope someone else has some suggestions.

What a great stash!  How about kites, kids tents/forts, funky curtains, patchwork shower curtain to use over a liner? ... The ideas are endless

yup, also drooling... lets see aside from the above mentioned,  get yourself a dress from and start draping something crazy!  And then wear it to work! LOL  At least, that is  what I would do!

That much fabric would stress me out.  Pick out stuff you really like and ebay or etsy the rest.  I know it's lame but, geez, the pressure to use all that.
