    hi all,

    I have lots of multicoloured leftover stuff (various material-such as cotton/silk etc) , can any one give me ideas to recycle it??

    I wish to make a quilt, i may have to buy more stuff to cover the borders but i it would be great if you could share your ideas with me..

    regards

    You can make cushion covers, and covers for appliances like mixer, grinder, computer, sewing machine, table cloth, depending on the length of cloth available.
