    Flannel scraps approx 12" x WOF

    I'm looking for ideas of what I can make with the trimmings from baby quilts. I have made the little burp cloths & may just continue with them, but wondered if you have any other easy items that I could make with them & include with the quilt being gifted. Thanks for any suggestions! ps. I don't want to make another rag quilt, I just wonder if there is some small item that I can make & have as an addition to the quilt, thanks again!

    Bibs are a great idea! Also, could you make burp rags?? I made a bunch for my grandson - flannel on both sides and and thin layer of batting in between.

    How about making a matching baby wipe case? Here is a tute that I saved a long time ago and if you do a google search, you can come up with others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9Ngb_pZsqQ

    You could also cut them into strips like a jelly roll and mix them to make a quilt. Also, I made a bumper pad for my granddaughter and it was cute. Keeps them from getting hurt if they roll into the crib rails.

    Sew them together to make quilt backings for future baby quilts.

    They don't look nice together or I would. I have bright yellow with ladybugs; pink & yellow flowers on green; blue hearts on white - just to name a few.

    Thanks everyone for your bib suggestion & I will watch the you tube link now.
