A Fabric Find and Hawthorne Threads

My gorgeous friend Rach sent me a link to Hawthorne Threads last week and I was besotted. I don't think I've seen such a gorgeous range of fabric under one 'virtual' roof. Luckily for me I was in need of some fabric for my boys' birthday t-shirts and then I was just so inspired by these - a selection from Echino fabrics. I just love the top right and even though I have no plans for it yet I bought a yard. These remind me of all the good design that exists in Japan. After living there in total for 3 years I experienced a lot of not so good design but this just shows that it's out there. Now the only question is what should I do with it? I'm thinking of buying some foam and making a cushion for our hallway shoe rack, what do you think? Suggestions would be welcome.

I think the pillow cushion would be lovely! I love the birds on the lower left. I wonder how big the pattern is on the fabric? I think it would be cute on an apron!
