So... I used most of a really cute teal and white zebra striped beach towel to make throw pillows, but I still have some left.  Way too much to pitch.  I thought about making some coasters but I don't really think thick terrycloth is the best choice for them.  My second thought is to cut the piece in half and make kitchen towels.  I don't need kitchen towels, though.  Ideas?!?!  Huh

What if you made a small bag to hold plastic grocery bags? Or you can make a small table runner for your coffee table (if you have one, also assuming that pillows are in your living room).

 Hmm...other ideas: Cover a small basket to hold magazines, make a remote caddy that can hang over the arm of your couch, or make a travel neck pillow.

There is really so much that you can do with it. If I think of anything more, I'll let you know.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

Thank you for your creativity, pjhamel!  I especially like the idea of making a grocery bag holder.  I'm going to think about that one.

If you cut it into small squares/circles/etc and hem them you could make reusable make up remover pads from it, if thats the sort of thing you might use...

I was thinking of bath mitt or soap holder scrubbie.
