I keep a lot of fabric scraps no matter how small they are. You never know what you can use them for. :)) I probably have to go through my box one day and get rid of some since it starts taking up way too much room.
I just found some smaller fabric pieces from a moda Halloween collection I bought last year. It wasn't a lot but still enough to make a large hot pad with. I even had enough left to make another smaller one but I ran out of insulated batting.
