    Are there creative uses for scraps of fleece fabric? Over the years I've made pj pants from fleece. All various solid colors. So I have those long strips left from the pant edges, and also the scraps from the crotch areas. Not fun colors - gray, brown, etc.

    If this creative group of quilters doesn't have any good ideas, I think I know of a group that uses fabric scraps to fill pillows for either a homeless shelter, or the dog shelter.

    TIA

    Can you cut into squares and make a throw out of them. I have one on my couch made from fleece scraps. It's very warm to snuggle with. Single layer and made it into a rag quilt.

    Do you know anyone who uses a CPAP machine? I have read that the fleece scraps are great to make coverings for the hose, and also if they use a full face mask to cover the straps that go across the cheeks.

    Put them in an old pillow case, sew up the open end and give it to the local animal shelter for their dogs and cats.

    Scarves, mitts and toques can all be made from fleece ... so patch it up and make fabric then onwards!

    Take 3 of those long strips and tie a knot at the end...then braid the length...
    Tie another knot at the other end and 1 in the middle and you have a great dog toy.
    These have been tested by the the 2 labs next door and they have a ball...

    Dog toys as mentioned and stuffing for dog toys. They wash so well.

    Made a robe (scrappy) and wore it for years. Of course, the kids thought I was a little crazy but . . .
