I have a bunch of these.  12x12 16x16  Also cotton ones 16x 16.  What could I make from these???

I love silk scarfs, to bad I don't wear them. You could make the obvious, pillow, blanket. They're also neat belts. Don't know what designs you have but they make neat lamp shades too.

This post has a good suggestion...making a small fold-up bag you can carry in your purse.

i have a few ideas for recycling silk/any kind of scarves.
1. choose complimenting colors and sew them end to end, then wrap around a curtain rod for a super cool window treatment!
2. pin to ceiling at end and middle of scarf to make it look billowy. it looks like clouds/tent/romantic and harem-esque.
3. cut diagonally down the middle of a small scarf, and sew to shoulders of a tank top to make super cool sleeves.

p.s. i've done the second one and its really cool. i'm gonna do the first one, but need more colors that match. let me know if anyone tries these and likes them!

You're lucky, I love scarves!  Hmm...I don't have many ideas other than what was already mentioned.  You could get sew them onto a solid fabric (to keep it from being see through) and make some cool skirts!  That would be pretty.
