Cotton?

I found some rolled cotton that belonged to my mom RIP. Will this cotton serve me any purpose in auto upholstery work other than using it to install buttons?

You can use it if you want to, but I never use anything a mouse will make a nest out of.

What do you think she had it for? She was into making clothes. I haven't a clue when it comes to this.

Really? I always wondered if you ever made a suit. Yeah, my mom was into clothes. I found a whole bunch of vintage patterns in my basement.
I tried eBaying them but no bites. Boy do I miss her

I think an ultra-suede suit would look great, Dan. Especially if you sculpted some flames around the pockets, sleeve cuffs, and up the pant legs...

My wife, the fiber artist, said that about the only thing she can think of for that cotton is quilt batting. According to her, back in the days before inexpensive Dacron batting, they used cotton batting in quilts, jackets, and just about anything padded - to include shoulder pads.

Knowing how "craft people" are, she may very well have inherited it from a friend and just didn't have a use for it. My wife has a room full of things like that, believe me...

The quilting makes sense. She was into that. She purchased the stuff brand new. I found the receipt to it.

As far as a suit is concerned - I think flames off the shoulders would be cool.

If you are going to have flames on clothes, it needs to be on the back of the pants.

All kidding aside coode ville( and so sorry about your mom ) garrish outfits with leather and flames may be a hit, look around at society these days a lot of people are dressing pretty ahem...different to say the least.
Look at dog the bounty hunter, he would buy a leather suit with flames on it.

My mom used to make clothes for us kids ( back in the day) and I allways got a homemade flannel shirt at christmas.I will never forget.
The cotton as said earlier was most likely shoulder pad.
