    Yesterday i brought home 2 huge bags of Fleece scraps, some are large some are just strips. I plan on making some dog toys(to donate) with some of it but was hoping to get some more ideas from you all! It's mostly black but there's a little grey.

    if you sew you could make a strip lap blanket.
    they turn out cute and with those colors would be good for anything cause dirt would not show

    I've made these for Christmas gifts from fleece. Hope the pictures show up enough to help make sense of the directions.

    Fleece head covering - or hooded neck scarf
    12 inch wide strip that is 68 inches long. Fold in half. Begin sewing on the fold edge 4 inches from the beginning of the fold makeing a circle arc that ends 8 inches from the end of the fold down the folded sid. Trim back to 1/2 inch and voila. Looks like the picture of a knitted one. I've made these in all colors. the guys will wear the darker colors made some out of camoflage for the grandsons.

    ear covering head band
    8 inch by 24 inches. sew the 8 inch ends together using 1/2 inch seam allowance. with seam line to the inside, fold the ring in half so that you have 3/4 inch overlap. roll the overlap over the other edge and seam closing the side. Make a similiar seam on the other side of the head band. These can be worn over a ball cap. For children sizes shorten the length to 20 or 22 inches and the width to 6 or 7 inches.

    Sew two rectangles together and fill with raw rice to make a cold/hot pack. You keep them in a ziplock baggie in the freezer and can use as an ice pack. Or you just put them into the microwave and heat them up for a moist heat pad. Make great gifts!
