Cup cozies for hot drinks comes to mind. I took my template off of a cardboard one from Starbucks. I use 2 pieces of fabric sandwiched with 1 layer of batting. I pinking sheer them all, sew around them and use Velcro to hold the 2 ends together. They are reversible and can fold flat for your purse or pocket!

Another item is yo-yos...for oh so many things!

I love to make scrap quilts. Also, I make hexies in 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", & 3/4" sizes. I enjoy making very small hexies, but I've also done the 1" size, which is less fun for me. I've put them in various projects, like needlecases, mug rugs, table toppers etc.

I love doing hexies, 3/4" for my cats GFG quilt and 1" ones also.
If I start doing the 1/4", someone please call the men in white coats on me.
I'll do a yo yo that size, but not a hexie, I wouldn't be able to see it.

The desk for my newly acquired Singer 201 is in the middle of being refinished. But I wanted so badly to use my 201!

So, I put it on the table and dug through some scraps. In about 30 minutes, I had a plastic bag holder/dispenser.

I like to use my scraps for pocketbooks I make. Eye glass cases, cell phone pocket in my pocketbooks.
Also bags to carry everything I haul around.
The inside fabric for pocketbooks and the pockets in them. I find it gives a nice pop of color.
Also book covers and baby or adult bibs. Apron pockets and trim.
I guess you can see if I have scraps I use them.
