Thrift Store Find........

The colors are so vibrant and the fabric is perfect. This is heavy weight, cotton and "Protected with Total Action Du Pont Zepel Soil and Stain Repeller" according to the print along the selvage edge.......
and a great find.......
just over 2 yards, 45" wide for $1.00.
So the question is......
What to do with this fabric?
I'd love to hear your ideas.......Thanks!

From what I read on-line Bloomcraft fabric is drapery / upholstery type.

Next up.....a thrifty find and a commissioned purse. Thanks for stopping by :-)
