Faux Matelassé is meant to mimic the style

Turn it right side out, stuff it with rice, beans, foam rubber, or whatever, and then hand sew the last seam together!

It can be glued onto a coffee can to make a canister, cover a small jewelry box, or be made into book covers and book marks.

Well, why not make some clothes for your daughter's favorite dolls? Or use them to make a stuffed animal for the baby? It can be anything from a teddy bear, to a snake, to a stuffed ball or car! If you don't feel creative, the patterns can be gotten for free on the internet. Just remember to sew them inside out, leaving on section open.

An interesting piece of material can be, starched, stretched and hung as a wall hanging. If the fabric is fragile, it can be hung in a picture frame and covered with non glare glass. Or make a family project of it and have the kids cut out shapes and pictures from the scraps, which then can be turned into a collage, framed and hung, or decoupage on an old piece of furniture!
