    Believe it or not, this is from Michael Miller's new "Baby" collection.

    They're pink elephants. Any ideas on how they could be used?

    Don't think they are a great idea for a baby or small person. How about an apron/potmit/mugrug for an entertainer in your life.

    From the baby collection? The elephants look like they're drinking! Maybe you could make coasters?

    When I like something and do not know what to do with it I hang it on the wall or put it where I see it all the time, sometimes it takes years to decide what to do with it, epiphanies always seem to present themselves!

    The elephants are drinking! What were they thinking? I love the fabric, all kidding aside, I would try to find a pattern that uses big blocks- it would be really cute for an adult unless you could conceal the alcohol bottles unless you could tell everyone that they are baby bottles!

    How about the drunkard quilt pattern.
    What was their thinking? Quilters have more morals than to make a baby/child gift from this pattern.

    I would make *Baby crib sheet sets with this print or Nursery room curtains(*flat sheet, fitted sheet, and pillowcase).

    Oops, did not see the alcohol/wine bottles.....but the crib sheet idea is still on my list if I came across this print.

    That's too perfect. Why not!

    No way would I use this in a baby quilt. The elephants are cute, but the connotation is just not right.

    Okay, I've had a little coffee and here's my thought.
    A cute apron. I have a friend, a delightful person, who loves retro and loves a little nip too. I could see her wearing an apron like this and whooping it up at cocktail hour while she fixes some little tidbits. I am serious. She'd flip over this fabric. Hmmm, will have to get some projects done and consider this.

    I like the fabric, but would not even think about using it for a baby...what were they thinking? That material is not suitable for a baby at all ( or even a child). I think it would look cute in a quilt for an adult, maybe a suare about 6" or so surrounded by a frame. I could see an apron or a small wall hanging for a bar area. Maybe a mugrag or coaster or something like that.

    It would make a cute backing for an adult quilt too.
