    You can also use them to make padded hangers. I have never done it myself, but you can wrap the batting over metal hangers and then sew fabric covers, wrap them in ribbon, or crochet over them...

    Cat toys! Draft dodgers for leaky windows! Seat belt cozies! I put them in the bottom of houseplants - when you water, dirt stays put, but can wick up water if plant needs it. Sometimes shoes are a scootch too big, and it is a good toe-stuffer. The others already got the rest .

    You're right! They're perfect for rag quilts. I'd forgotten about using them for that purpose.

    I like the pot plant one! I wonder how long before they decay, I'm going to try that one!

    How about using the left over batting for the panels for a quilted handbag? I cut mine 14 X 15 and often I have that much left over on the edge of a batting. If you have pieces 7 or 8 inches wide, , you can cut several pieces and zig-zag them together. Once they are inside the quilted piece, one would never know.

    Oh, I forgot to tell you, my middle name is "frugal" and if you could see my basement, you would know it is true.

    I too had a closet full of bating scraps. Well, we got a puppy a few months ago and wanted a doggie bed for her. I had been given some fabric scaps like you make slip covers out of only it wasn't enough to do anything with. I made a big pillow case and stuffed it with batting and sewed the end shut. Its probably a little lumpy cause of the different types of batting, but she doesn't care and it save me around $30 bucks or so.
