I recently inherated(sp?) my grandmother's sewing things.  She passed away when I was about 12 and my grandpa just passed away last sunday.   Well I was looking through everything (there's ALOT) and I found some of my grandma's old dresses.  I was wondering if any of you would have ideas on what I could make out of them, there's 3 of them.  with one I am going to make a pillow and use the scraps left over from the pillow to make part of my dd's easter dress.  but I'm stuck on any other ideas.

Maybe you could make cute skirts for yourself or your daughter if you have one. Tote bags, purses, scarves, rolled flower headbands, braided fabric bracelets. Maybe frame a search of fabric if its lovely tor wall art.
