I don't need no instructions to know how to rock!

Hello everybody! I crocheted matching cotton dish cloth, oven mitt and pot holder sets for a bunch of family & friends this past xmas. I moved about 2 months ago and found a bag of scraps from those projects but now I have no idea what to do with them. I've already made a ton of tawashi and face scrubbers and now I'm out of ideas!

I have orange, pink, green, turquoise, black, white, tan and yellow yarn. I don't think they would look great in one big project like a pillow or bag but they would be great in pairs for small projects. If you have any suggestions or ideas for small, cotton projects I would greatly appreciate the help!  Grin

Yarn is my craft drug of choice

I've seen crocheted (waterbottle) cozies here, or perhaps you could make flowers. I often use those to decorate gifts with, but I find them useful for lots of things. I even saw a garland here a while ago. Amigurumi could also be an idea, or a headband...?

What about crocheting geometric shapes or leaves and attaching them to inexpensive earring pieces?

here's some inspiration from etsy designers whose items I love (I am recommending inspiration not duplication):

Headbands are great, especially summer ones.  Small embellishments to go on them, too...or you could mix and match the colors to make cell phone cozies, change purses, slippers, little baby items, maybe a little girl's purse or similiar? 

Or hotpads to go with the dishcloth/potholder sets...you know, the things you put on the table to keep hot dishes from scorching tablecloths or wood.

There are a lot of smaller amigurumi toys out there that call for multiple colors- but not a lot of each. I'd try finding some of those and make some gifts Smiley
