  1. Interlining? Learn to quilt?

      Quilting scares me. I’m way too imprecise in my cutting.

      I actually did think of it for a jacket lining. But with it being quilters cotton I’m afraid it wouldn’t be as easily slipped on/off.

      • I don’t quilt either, and for the same reason :) If you want to make the jacket warmer or stabilise the fashion fabric, you could just sandwich the cotton between the jacket and lining. I think flannel is usually used for that, but quilter’s cotton could work.

    Oooh I don’t know but I actually really like it! That’s great that they let you keep it.

    when I find ridiculously cute fabric that I just can’t pass up, I purchase enough to make a pair of boxers or pajama pants.

    I would totally make an apron or a skirt out of that.

  5. Make some cushions for the chairs you use in your garden/on your balcony. I often find the selection of garden-furniture-cushions in the shops, to be so not-interesting! This print would be perfect! :-)
