    What are these?

    I purchased 3 totes full of fabric and found these. There are 5 different shapes, about 50 in each stack except the bottom right which has about 10 and those have a notch in each one. They are flannel. I have no clue what they are for, any ideas?Name:  1017587_10151686149789940_943419599_n.jpg

    I don't sew clothing at all but could they be the beginnings of shoulder pads?

    My guess is the start of making teddy bears. Looks like some of the head pattern pieces I have used in the past.
    Confirmed fabric-holic seeking 12 step treatment program or a storage building.

    If they were cotton, I might guess pieces for a butterfly appliqué quilt. Since they are flannel, I am voting for teddy bear pieces.

    They look to be cut a way from making sleeping pants.
    Scrapy quilts have more love in them.

    A couple of the shapes make me think of butterfly wings.

    Could they possibly be used for bean bags in different shapes? I have made many in flannel but usually just make squares or circles.

    Could they be pieces left over after cutting something else out? At the quilt shop in town I have purchased similar shapes of scraps . Just a guess...

    My guess is they are pieces for stuffed animal, Bears, Puppies? They are similar to some stuffies I did a while ago.

    I think they are shoulder pads. See what you can make with them.

    Cut away scraps from flannel p.j's--from some garment factory? They cut garments in many layers at a time with the lasers. Oh Lordy--how often I wish for a laser cutter!!

    I, too, think they are pieces to a stuffed bear and a pretty one at that.

    They look like parts of a flower or butterfly waiting to be appliquéd.
