    • Back with organic cotton/bamboo towelling to make reusable cosmetic wipes
    • Stitch pieces together to use as bias tape
    • Stitch pieces together to make piping. This is great for pattern scraps for contrasting piping - it's all about the detail!
    • Use scraps for facings or as pocket linings
    • Sandwich with interlining to make bookmarks
    • Shred into smaller pieces to use as filling/stuffing
    • Make small bean bags to use as pattern weights
    • Patchwork in style - for example, sew 2 large pieces together to create 1 front piece to use as a top front, creating a half and half pattern.
    • Make patch pockets with them, and add to plain tees
    • I'm sure you already have - face masks!
