What to do with tiny felt leftovers?
Hey I love making little plushies and things with felt, and I also hate wasting. But I have a problem... what to do with all the little tiny bits that are way to small to use with another project. I have a whole bag of them now! lol Is there any cool projects/ideas I can use them for? I have seen people using them as stuffing in their plushies, but I dont like the way they turn out looking in the end.
Thanks for any ideas!

Maybe you can sew them together to make like, a patchworky piece of felt. Sorry, that's all I can think of. If they're too tiny, I personally would throw them away. Unless it's wool felt, maybe you can needle felt with it? I don't needle felt yet so I wouldn't know, though.
Make some inchies, or make a felt collage.
If you can needle felt them, combine them all to make a bigger sheet of felt that you can use for something else.
You can make hair barets, just glue them onto regular barets
Cut them in really tiny pieces and make a little mosaic picture with them.
I like Emily's idea of the patchwork-like felt. You could even make a plushie like that! A franken-plushie!
The patchwork thing is a good idea for the larger pieces, but the baggie full of bits I have are all tinnie tiny! Like any smaller and they would be lint, lol.
if you know any kids, let them glue on paper and spread the felt on. i don't think there's anything else you can do with that size.
Gluestick pieces onto base fabric.Machine with different threads and stitches.Use for inches or twinchies
I use this method for paperquilts
it's acutaly decent material for the resuable pads too...
depending on the quality of the felt you could pop then in a small muslim type bag and chuck then in the washing machine on a high heat and a fast spin and just see what turns out
I use them as stuffing
i use those as stuffing, too
Stick a needle right through the middle of them and make a scrappy necklace! I think it would look really unique.
I'd use them them for inchies like Monika and Debs said. You could also use them in making cards.
