Very excited that my boss is letting me buy a bunch of curtain samples from my work. I work for a home decor store that is known for its beautiful imported textiles and furniture, starts with a P, ends with a 1. They are from curtains that we no longer sell, and some of the fabrics are quite lovely. I am definitely going to use some as table runners. I really don't need to make any more pillows but I probably will. Why else can I do with them?
Pics coming soon

Bags, pouches, patchwork skirt/scarf ... table runner ... I'll keep thinking!  Can't wait to see.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Fabric journals, mats and backgrounds for art or pictures, fabric coasters, place mats, purses, fabric baskets/bins, aprons, art quilts/mixed media pieces, books totes/covers, laptop/tablet covers, gift bags, book totes, lunch bags, prayer flags, celebration banners/garlands/bunting

Yes - if it is the store I am thinking, they do have some lovely fabrics and patterns!

vests, boho pants, scarves/shawls, belts.   Um, extremely boho curtains?  A panel of this, panel of that...

The first things I thought of:  pillows (which you said you don't need more of!) - and place mats - and if the fabrics aren't too heavy, scarves.  That'd be simple enough - cut rectangle, fold over or serge the long edges, fringe the ends....   Or, don't laugh, depending on the weight of the fabric, I'd be thinking about tops or skirts.

Or tablecloths.

Would love to see, if you make stuff!

Do it yourself and save :-)
