Hi Y'all,
I am not a newbie however, I am far from an expert. I would say I am moving into intermediate stage with one foot dangling in newbie-dome. Anyway, I just bought some really adorable clearance fabric from Hancock Fabrics. It is pique fabric. I never heard of it so I checked a fabric glossary. To me, it seemed like it could be loosely compared to seersucker. My intention was to make pillowcases with it but when it arrived yesterday it just doesn't seem like it would be a good choice of fabric for pillowcases. My question is, can anyone give me some suggestions on how they would use this fabric? I posted the links below so you can see what pattern is on the fabric. Thanks in advance for any and all of the help/suggestions y'all can give me..... Karen

It looks like it would be good as summer clothes of some sort.  Do you have any little girls you could sew for?  There are several good clothing tutorials here on craftster.  Good luck!

I have used pique to make a dress for my daughter.  Could you use it for throw pillows instead of pillow cases?

I made some adorable pants for my baby girl out of pique.  But I do think that throw pillows would be a good idea, too!

If you don't have any kids to sew for, maybe cute summer tops? Pique is really cool and quite durable, IMO.

But throw pillows would be really cute too.

In the end, only kindness matters.
