    Sorting thru your stash, why not pick out some scraps & make scarecrows to applique? I'm thinking of a yoyo for a pumpkin head.
    Decorate a tea towel for a special friend or your own kitchen? Cute on a kids sweatshirts too. I'll show you what I come up with.

    Dotty - Great idea!! I definitely want to see your creation!
    I have to make a few Fall gifts and I think I might follow your lead :) - wish we were neighbors too :) we would have sooo much fun!

    Does any one else have any great Scarecrow patterns or ideas?

    Some ideas:
    .Make little yarn dolls & dress them in scraps. Lapel pin!
    .Appliques...
    .In school, I collect gatorade bottles, cover with scraps. Add twig arms, styofoam ball head or mini pumpkin. Embellish with all those cute things they sell in crafts stores!
    .Stuff a 6" circle for a head, secure with rubber band.
    Scrappy hair. Glue to empty toilet paper roll, also covered with scraps, add buttons, etc. Place card decorations or just to keep-the-kids-busy.
