    It appears that some designers are running out of good ideas. I don't find it appealing at all and can't think of anyone that I know that would. Sorry.

    I am silly! I only saw the elephants...not the liquior...I don't drink. Mug rugs would be about it or an apron I guess.

    Great idea - fussy cut the elephants into coasters that strap onto the base of the wine glass! Similar to this idea: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...p?SKU=15946849

    I think that would be adorable, and I may do that myself! My mother is not a crafty person, but she loves things that are different, and this definitely fits into that category!

    For what it's worth... the rest of Michael Miller's baby collection is ... umm... unobjectionable.

    http://michaelmillerfabrics.com/MMF/....cfm?Gnam=Baby

    I think they included the pink elephants because it was in the same colors as some of their new baby prints (which include gray).

    I could do without the skull-and-crossbones "baby fabric" too, though...

    Let's stick with dots, and stripes, and (non-tipsy) jungle animals for Baby!

    I would feature this material in a snowball pattern or an Irish chain using shades of pink for the chain. I love it! Just because the material is from a baby collection doesn't mean it has to be used for a baby. Don't give up on it.

    What was their thinking? Quilters have more morals than to make a baby/child gift from this pattern.
    The drunkards path pattern would be a great idea! Only for a grown up baby!
