The rainforest in full bloom is a riot of color and shape. This is really no different, except that it’s a fabric and comes in a dozen distinct colors fixed atop a semi-sheer nude mesh, stretching 56 inches across. The pattern is both repeating and massive, taking up almost the entire width of the fabric, and every yard sells for $29.99.

Because of the pattern’s size, this fabric may be best suited for home decor, but could make a beautiful skirt draping or lace wings on a lady’s gown. To limit waste and maximize your recycling with this material, try to use every stitch you can. Strips can be trimmed with small bits of lace and used as delicate curtain cords, whereas squares can be fixed to clothes for a bit of new color. If all else evades you, gather up your fragments; a shadowbox can be used for photo frames, hung on the wall, or given to friends.

Although it is nearly transparent, the mesh backing is still colored. It may change the color of a fabric lain beneath it, so you should pin it into position and determine if it matches your vision before sewing it into place.
