with a couple of them and some heavy plastic (Walmart) you can make kid's bags for the back of carseats.

I enjoy making the pocket tissue holders. They can be sold individually or several together in a basket. I think it is fun to group them by themes: 1930's reproduction nostalgic ones or Christmas fabrics for stocking stuffers.

I appreciate all the ideas...I wish there was a "like" button on here, so I could just hit it on comments. But thank you all.

Just remember that they are actually 2 fat quarters! So anything goes. A nice scrappy purse would be nice, a scrappy quilt or jacket. there are alot of patterns for purses made with a couple of fat quarters.

A Necessary Clutch Wallet can be made with 2 fat quarters or 1/2 yard. Would be different for a boutique item.

Hanging kitchen towels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJrX-pdc8dw

One towel cut in half will make two hanging towels. The you'll need to cut four of the top pattern. One-half yard of fabric should be a good amount.

I bought a package of ten kitchen towels from Costco. That made 20 hanging towels. I kept some, gave some as gifts, and donated some to my guild's boutique. It was a great way of using up some of my leftover fabric. They were so much fun to make that I bought another package of towels yesterday.

You could make Snap Bags by Stitchin Sisters. I LOVE mine. Received it as a gift and, in turn, have made for others. Incidentally, one metal retractable tape measure makes a LOT of small bags.
