    Sometimes I have absolutely NO IDEAS whatsoever.

    This is also a future fabric release. I assume someone had an idea... the designer, surely? ... but I'm drawing a blank on this one.

    Creative souls, please chime in!

    I see it as a skirt for a dressing table or possible an old style sink.

    I see it as curtains in my daughters room. She loves old hollywood and those would definitely bring the glamorous feel. Otherwise...I dont think I would use it for anything else.

    Are those cigarettes in the fabric? That would turn me off.

    I don't know what you would use it for, but it reminds me of my grandmother. She always used one of those cigarette holders when she smoked. I think she did so that her fingers would not get stained from the tobacco. She smoked pretty much non-stop. Funny thing, well, not really funny, but ironic--she died on one of the Great American Smoke-Out days. :shock:

    I agree with RedGarnet and butterflywing.

    Seems to me I saw some Audrey Hepburn fabric somewhere or was that something else? I dunno.
