I have all these scraps left over. They are nice flannels and cute prints but aren't enough for a whole diaper. I hate to throw them away. What do you do with yours?

I've been saving mine to make a baby quilt. I've seen someone that saved theirs and made them into a quilt looking diaper. It was pretty cool.

Oh something I just started tonight. Scrunchies! Fabric scraps work great to make your own hair ties. And they only take a minute or two to make.

Serged jersey and interlock scraps together into fitteds.

Still haven't figured out what to do with my hemp and BKT scraps.

You could make diapers for dolls or stuffed animals.

I use the bigger scraps for mama cloth and cut the rest of it into quilt squares. I better take the time to start the quilt, at the rate I'm accumulating scraps it's going to be huge!! :LOL

I save scraps for appliques, wipes, mamma pads, doublers, doll diapers and asseccories, doll pillows and blankets(serge scraps together and make a doll quilt, quicker than a big quilt! lol) you can save hemp scraps and dye them. you can sell a bag of scraps to someone who makes little dolls, gnomes, etc or start a new hobbie, lol!

I sent a bunch of my fleece and PUL scraps to a mama who makes mamapads. I posted in a coop that I had extras to get rid of. She paypal'd me postage money, and I filled a box for her. It worked out great for both of us. I just hate wasting, and I didn't have time to do anything with. My extra flannel has been cut into quilt squares for whenever I get around to quilting again.

I've been using my scarps for mama cloth and wipes. I barely throw any cloth away after I put apart the ones for wipes and mama cloth. If i knew how to sew very well I'd make a quilt....
