Weird Fabric

The Tightwad Gazette once featured an article about how to furnish your first home for practically free:  ask people for the stuff they have that they don't want.  The main principle was that you turned down nothing, lest you put people off offering things to you.  I've adopted this principle myself concerning fabric.

But what do you do when someone gives you a piece of fabric that, interesting though it is, you'd never in a million years make something to wear from it?

Wrap a gift

or cover a waste paper basket

to coordinate with the new green bathroom.
