    Bought fabric online, not really the color I wanted for project.

    So... what would you do with 1 yard of orphan fabric?

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Color matching is one of the reasons I do not purchase on-line, plus I am a touchy-feely shopper. ;)

    Put it in your stash . . . then one day it will the PERFECT fabric for another project.

    I would add it to my stash. Something will come along that it will be perfect for.

    I would probably end up using it in a charity project.

    back it with a heavier fabric and make a couple tote bags.

    Or a pillowcase to add to a charities stash.

    Another thought is to back it with a coordinating fabric. Top stitch the edges and then use it to wrap gifts for family members. I use a hair binder to hold all the corners together and then take the extra fabric from the gathering to make a nice little bow by tucking in the corners to the hair binder. That is if you do not want to make something with it :D
