My mother tried to get rid of this fabric, and I adopted it. I just washed it and now don't know what to do with it. It's like a matlesse, so it's cushiony, very soft, 100% cotton.

The print is large some of the flowers are the size of dinner plates and they are graduated in size down to a tea saucer size. There are printed stripes along the border to incorporate them, somehow.

Vintage print'/>

You know LR a blankie isn't a bad idea, there's no reason I have to make something to wear out of it. Still it is so soft...

Is this enough fabric to make a bath robe? That would be my number one choice.

I definitely vote for a blanket or pillow covers. I think the flower motifs would go well in the center of pillows and they could be surrouned by panels of coordinating colors on the edges. You could also piece together a sort of quilt by having the flowers on every other square. It's sort of a seventies look, or was that the sixties? It's kind of vintage looking. Maybe you could sell it on e-bay as vintage (if it is) and buy something easier to make up.

Honestly, though I can see that in a little girl's room, or as a favorite cuddly blanket in the family room or the car on long trips. Would go with a "mod" decor in a girl's room with black, white and pink plastic chairs and side tables.

I think you've gotten some awesome ideas!!

Depending on the amount of fabric, though, I'd go for the bathrobe. A matlesse kind of fab would be luscious for a robe. But then, I still need to make ME one, so that's where my brain wants to go!!!

If not a bathrobe, then def a machine cover. I mean, you should use the fab wherever you'd get to see it/use it most. Since it was from your mom's stash, I think it'd give you happy thoughts (and her!!) whenever you see it (and touch it, of course!)!!

Great score!! Congrats!!

Why did I think of a bathrobe right away, as well? Maybe because another of the first things that popped into my head was a kimono. The fabric has a definite Japanese look to me. How much do you have?

2 yds, 45" width. I think a kimono is it, as I need a bathrobe.
