I need help with this one!

I picked up this roll of "army green' twill at a sale.  Looks like the kind of material used for 'draw-string' pants.  I couldn't just leave it there, but I've racked my little brain and can't come up with any brilliant plans for it!    The roll is 11 1/4" in diameter and the twill is 1" wide.

Suggestions, ideas and/or comments welcomed!

P.S.  It could be yours for a small 're-homing' fee!

CottageElements writes: Could it be used to make a woven rug? Not sure if the material would be heavy enough to withstand the wear. Or it would be great for use in making belts with a fun buckle, or purse straps. Very fun find for sure!

MakinItHappen writes: You can use it as ribbon for tying tags on things or wrapping presents. You can tie up your delphiniums or sweet peas. You could wrap it around a frame holding a photo of your favorite soldier. Posted: 4:32 pm on March 16th
