Batting scrap busting

If you use quilt batting in your crafting, after a while, you'll end up with batting scraps like this..
What do you do with your odd sized batting scraps??

I separate them into piles..
Very small pieces like this goes into 'stuffing pile,'
to be used as stuffing in pincushion or soft toys.

Small and medium pieces are pieced together (using zig zag stitch)
to be used in small projects like making card holders.

Bigger pieces are also stiched together (using zig zag stitch)
to be used in my bag projects like quilted bento.   
How do you manage your batting scraps?? Care to share..
Pin It

great idea! my batting scraps is slowly building up now, dunno what to do with them and they are quite bulky only thoughts before use for stuffing but your tip to ziz zag stitch and reuse in bagmaking is brilliant!

Hobby Mummy - with the ammount of quilting you do, I'm sure your batting scraps are a lot.. Hope you'll share once you find some good use for your batting scraps..

Zura - Thanks!! Hope to see some cute bags made using some recycled batting soon :D
