Over the years, I've made numerous fleece blankets. And what I have left are the 4" squares that are made when turning the corners on the blankets.

Anyone have ideas what I could do with these scraps? As I said...they're about 4" square.

TIA

You can cut them even smaller and use them as stuffing in pillows, toys, anything else that needs soft stuffing.

Hi there!

I`ve used fleece scraps to make beds for my cats. I just sewed squares together and covered an old pillow with them. Then I made another one using quilt batting for padding.

Our cats simply love them Smiley

They could be nice gifts for friends who have pets.

They are really good for dusting! Everything sticks to it, like a swiffer.

I got these "owie" packs in a swap once.  I think they were basically just like itty bitty pillows filled with rice.  I know you can either nuke them or put them in the freezer for hot or cold packs.

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

My local hospital has a group that collects fleece scraps... they make ornaments from scraps... I think they give them out to all long term patients... not sure but I put together big bags of scraps and take it to the info desk at the hospital. Might see if you have something like that... or you could make the ornaments.. just cut two shapes around a cookie cutter... stuff with scrap from cutting... and blanket stitch around the edge... add a hanger... and donate to preschools, shelters, hospitals, schools daycares,or put them out as random acts of kindness.
