I have some fabric with a "dollar signs" pattern. Are there any suggestions on what to make with this unique material? It is all cotton with a white background surrounded by 1 inch emerald green dollar signs throughout. I have over five (5) yards of this 58 inch material. The picture shown is the pattern of the fabric. I would appreciate other fun ideas.

They would be good for "tooth fairy" visits. Or St. Patty's Day.

I have seen men's boxers made out of that type of print. Actually PJs could be made out of it. Or use it for the back of an old fashioned patch work quilt.

My first thought was fabric wallet or coin purse. Back the fabric with interfacing to "stiffen" it a bit and make it stronger.


Also, what about using it on homemade cards for graduation, birthday or other event where money or gift cards are being given as a gift (maybe not wedding unless recipients have a good sense of humor!). Back the fabric with fusible web, cut out a design (large dollar sign, graduation cap, birthday cake, ship/boat - for cruise cash gift, or whatever is fitting, then take card stock to make card and just iron the 'applique' onto the card stock. Don't leave iron in place or you will singe the paper. Do a second press from the inside of the card to really fuse it down.

Could also make little bags to hold cash or coins to give as holiday tips to mail carriers (note USPS is not allowed to accept cash gifts)/newspaper deliverers/household helpers/ kid that mows the lawn/ teachers/etc.


What about a hat for a bingo caller, lottery/raffle drawer or ticket seller, or anyone else dealing with money/prizes in a fun situation?

Coasters to use at a poker party or pool table (where betting would be going on). Same with napkin rings.

I like the tooth fairy bag idea already listed. I didn't think of that one.

The smaller items (tooth fairy bags, tip bags, cards) could even be made in bulk and sold at a craft fair for a $1 or 2 each.

Do you still have some? I am looking for dollar sign fabric for a project I am working on. We just rescued a dog named Thurston Howell the 3rd ;) Thursty needs some appropriate wardrobe.

I have some money printed fabric. It has a black background with $5, $10, etc. printed on it. How would you use it in a Halloween costume and also a dog costume?

Make a Richie Rich costume. Remember the dog dollar.
