    Hold on and use as accent stripe. Make baby hats. Scrappy blanket. I love making the pinwheel scrap blanket! So fun finding all kinds of colour combos.

    I save tiny scraps to use as filler for pet pillows which I donate to our SPCA. I make the pillow from large fabric scraps.

    Depending on the size of the scraps, I do one of several things. If it's just little snippings, I save them to use as stuffing for amigurumis and such. With scrap leftover balls, I have made ear savers/mask extenders for the face masks we've been wearing.... just a little 4-5 inch crocheted piece with a button sewn onto each end to pull the mask ear loops off the ears so they don't rub the backs of the ears raw from constant wear. Another thing I do is make the teeniest, tiniest hats for the "angel babies" (babies that were stillborn, miscarried, or born so prematurely that they didn't survive long... I also make little blankets for this program as well). Lastly, I make little granny squares... about 3 rounds, sometimes referred to as "saltines", and leave a decent length tail on them. After I get a box full of them, I go and add another few rounds in black or white, and then join them together to make a colorful granny square blanket.
