Mail Goodness....And A Challenge....

Look what I got in the mail today from my sweet friend Amanda!

My birthday is next week, but I will be out of town for it, so she sent me a gift a little early. A pretty little stamped card and a quilted zippper pouch. It is even prettier in person than it looked online when she posted it in her blog a while back in her patchwork obsession series. It is perfect. I have been saying to my husband for weeks that I need a new makeup bag, the one I have is too big and I lose stuff in it too easily. I'm forever digging everything out of it to find what I am looking for. This one is a much better size. I absolutely love it! Thank you so much Amanda!

Now.... the challenge. I am looking for suggestions as to what to make with this.

I have about 4 yards of this fabric. Years ago my mother gave me several pieces of fabric and lots of scraps that she didn't think she would ever use. I am not particularly fond of this fabric, but feel like I should use it for something. I believe that it is cotton, but it has sort of a linen look to it. It looks like tan and blue in this picture (white balance was off in my camera, I guess), but it is really more of a gray and blue. Any suggestions?

so glad you like your little zip pouch...that is why I ignored your zipper tutorial question ;) if you still want the info, let me know.

I'll think on that challenge...
