    I could see the snake skin fabric being used for a snake & turtle as part of a tropical scene or maybe garden of Eden with beautiful flowers, trees, birds other animals, etc. It would get lost in the beauty.

    No offence, but I agree.
    None taken!!!
    My youngest son would love that for boxer shorts.

    OK, so now your fabric certainly doesn't look ugly. I really like your bags. Great idea.

    Here is my ugly. I know once it is combined with other fabric's it will be beautiful. It was given to me but I had told the gifter that I would take ugly fabric because I can make it beautiful.

    I wish the colors would have shown better but this is close.

    cjomomma, I hate to say it, but I think I like your piece. I like the color combo. Can't decide if it reminds me of upholstery or drape material from the old days.

    Vanuatu Jill...that piece is really awful, but WATCH OUT, NorbanaQuilts is coming!

    Here is my ugly fabric. I think I bought it on the internet. I think it was an assorted fat quarter pack. If I remember right, they were all ugly. This reminds me of a 60's tyedye T-shirt.

    I've been there and done that myself! I do believe your fabric wins out as the ugliest one...but you know that the smaller you cut the fabric, the prettier it gets!

    I have to watch this thread LOL Y'all are too much. LOL

    I have some really ugly fabric but it's packed away somewhere in a plastic tub because of construction going on here. I'm in sewing withdrawal right now.
