Taking the plunge?

I've been staring at this awesome cat print chiffon for a couple of months now. I only have a little bit of it, only enough for one top, so have been scared to take the plunge and sew. Do any of you do this? "Save" great fabric or craft materials and go years before using them, if ever?

I've written about this before, and even tried to make a proper Resolution about using my "special" fabrics. But it's not getting any easier. I'm starting to wonder actually if it's a confidence thing. I don't have confidence that the item I'll make will be good enough to have wasted the special materials on. This isn't a nice feeling! Unfortunately, it's a feeling that creative people and artists often have. I'd love some tips for how to get over it!

For now, however, this beautiful cat chiffon will be used as a scarf. You can't go wrong with a rectangle!
