I have some small fleece pieces too, leftover from baby blankets made for nieces and nephews. So kind of at random, I started sewing them into little pillows just big enough for a kid's head to use while traveling. Taking little pillows camping and to Grandma's will save a lot of room in the van. Even better - the girls sewed the pillows themselves.
And it's Easter, and I don't like the big straw Easter baskets that just take up tons of space if they don't get crushed and ruined within a couple of days (total waste of money) ... I made these Halloween trick-or-treat bags a loooong time ago, and decided to do the same thing for Easter this year. Ten bags later ... our five girls, the two cousins who recently moved to Hartford, and three friends who were visiting from DC for the weekend. These are the bags that stayed here. I used whole 9x12 pieces of felt for the body of the bags, and scraps for the handles and decorations. We also got into the box full of ribbon scraps, and even used some buttons (the yellow flowers on the purple bag). It was a combination of sewing and heavy use of the hot glue gun.
And the bags in use!
