    I am wondering what to do with my bits and pieces of material that are not good to use for a scrapes. They are tiny little cuts that would be no good for anything. Any ideas? I hate to throw them away if they can be used in some way. Thanks.

    Some people make pet beds and use the tiny bits and pieces for stuffing.

    Some people on the board collect 'crumbs'. Hope they will chime in so we know who they are.

    How do the crumbs work for stuffing things? Are they soft like the polyfil or lumpy?

    I just stuffed a medium sized flat rate box with my scraps that I don't use. I gave it away on the board the other night. Going to start a new one. Probably won't take too long since I'm doing Christmas sewing. The Gkids get new p.j.'s every year for Christmas.
