Hi Guys =)

I make a TON of those no-sew fleece blankets, and have little squares, almost like 1x1 inches of left over fabric, and I just have scraps of that..and ideas what to make??

I don't know how well fleece will work for this, but this book:http://www.amazon.com/Omiyage-Handmade-Fabric-Japanese-Tradition/dp/0809229099/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1206895212&sr=1-2
has lots of ideas for making stuff out of tiny remnants of fabric.  Though I'm usually using leftover bits of cotton quilting fabric. 

Fleece is also pretty good for applique, because it doesn't fray.  You could try doing some sort of mosaic or something. 

You might get a better response if you posted question this on one of the sewing boards.  People who know more about fabric are more likely to hang out there.   Smiley

make the same stuff you could make out of tiny scraps of felt (i have seen a lot of different little multi-layer flowers or other things to either appliqu or make into jewelry).

Chop it all up tiny (1x1 is good, but if you have bigger pieces try to get them as small) throw the bits in an old pillowcase as you aquire them. When it is full, sew the end up and you have a great new pillow! Smiley I also do this with old sweatpants and tshirts... Smiley

I have an idea along this concept.......... Smiley

If you tend to have lots of them...........and keep accumulating them........you can always use a piece of fabric you're not crazy about.........and sew up pet pillows to donate to your local animal shelter.........they're always appreciative of them...........and so are their "guests".........
