You see I bought an awful lot of fabrics when I was making tshirts for Boos Tees, and now that is no more I need to re-purpose, recycle or re-locate sundry bits of fabric.
A lot of it is in fat quarters*
A lot of it is stuff I really like.
I would like to use it.....but what? and how?
I already made some bow ties. (You can see them at the bottom of this post.)
So I've done a bit of research and have come up with these other possibilities.
1. Tea cosy.

But I could make a toaster cover?
Or a food mixer cover?
I wouldn't do such fancy quilting and I probably would leave out the felt flowers.
2. Sweet little boxy pouch.

This is a different shape from all my other pouches.....so could be useful.
3. Fabric covered bulletin board.

4. Infinity scarf.
5. Tablet or kindle cover.
I wouldn't put the apple on the front though.
And I'm not mad about the binding....
It has a pocket on the front, not sure what that is for.
6. Drawstring bag.
This could be very useful.
7. Simple tote bag.

Love this fabric too.
8. Fabric trays.
I could put beads in them!
9. Gardeners apron.
I'm liking that idea.
10. Cloth napkins.
But whatever, this is the easiest of them all!
and we do use cloth napkins.
This tutorial shows you how to get the corners mitred all neatly.
I could also make cloth handkerchiefs.
* for non-patchworky people, a fat quarter is a quarter of a square meter of fabric cut in a square.
