    Default What would you make with this medical/nurse fabric?

    I have a huge quantity of both these fabrics. Originally thought I would use for VQC bags, but doesn't seem appropriate. The background is white (bad photos), 100% cotton, wide width.

    Any ideas or suggestions? What would you make?

    Thanks in advance.Click image for larger version.

    Love the one with band aids and stethoscopes! You could make scrub tops or little first aid pouches. Or either print would be a cute backing for a wheel chair sized quilt. Or if you have grandkids under the age of like 7 you could make a pretend cast with velcro closing and double batting and they could pretend to have a broken arm.

    Very creative!
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I think I would make scrubs. I also think like Jocelyn that they'd be cute for backings for wheel chair quilts or wheel chair caddys. Heating pad or water bottle (does anyone still use one?) covers.
    edit: Sorry Jocelyn. I didn't read your complete suggestion and see you suggested scrubs. That seems like the perfect thing to use on. OR, hospital gowns would be cute with these fabrics, too. Maybe for nursing homes, etc.

    Scrubs or a scrub jacket. That fabric was designed to coordinate with all the most common scrub colors. It would also be cute in kid-sized scrubs. Or a tote bag. I love Jocelyn's idea about making a pretend cast.

    Thanks. I like the ideas of wheelchair caddy, water bottle covers, maybe even some bean bepags for ouchies. .

    Scrubs came to mind, but I don't know anyone to give them to. Nurses at my mom's place wear same colour tops to identify the as nursing staff. Volunteers have another colour vest.

    Would anyone like some? Send me a PM.

    That's true. But I wasn't sure who would want a quilt with medical items. I might do this, as I have a lot of solid fabrics that would match.

    How about some quick zipper pouches for the nurses!

    It would be good for an I Spy quilt if you ever planed on making one.
