For a while now I have been saving used Color Catchers.  Most are dingy looking so I throw them in the rag bag and use them for cleaning up spills, but some are actually kind of pretty.  I have been trying to think up a crafty use for them.  I made a bean bag for my son out of one.   It worked out pretty well, but really, how many bean bags do you need?  Any suggestions?

I did not know what these things are! Thanks to google, they are a great idea.
We don't have those here yet.
This lady seems to like using them for many different things on her blog.
From painting, dimensional art pieces to some interesting quilt pieces


Good luck!

I don't know if you have found a use for the color catchers yet or if your still looking, but I saw a tutorial the other day for flowers made from dried baby wipes. http://embellished-dreams.blogspot.com/2010/05/handmade-flower-pin-flower.html

Since the color catchers are already colored from your clothes you probably wouldn't even have to dye them.  Other fabric flower tutorials would work as well, and you would probably get a really cool tie dye effect

I finally have a use for the used Color Catchers.  Check out my Challenge 114 entry, rolled beads:
