I've had a dozen or so scraps of upholstery velvet samples for a long time, and I am at a loss about what to do with them but seem unable to part with them.  They are rather small, about 7" x 6", so they don'f fit any of the projects I think of.  And each is a different colour.  The material is quite thick, since it's supposed to be used to line armchairs.  Last thing I tried with them is a wallet, but each piece is too small and if I put two together the item becomes too bulky.
Any ideas?

Darwstring bags.  We were given theater velvet, the kind used for stage curtains and backdrops.  We sewed two pieces together that were not the same color, added a casing, and used black leather strips for the drawstrings.  We took them to a craft show and sold every one of them.
