I figured out what to do with my batting scraps! Oh, Happy Day. You know, the ones that are too small to bother piecing together, but too big to throw away - at least without some level of guilt?
A new dog bed!
And a new cat bed!
There is an obvious preference for the larger pillow. The dog pillow fabric was a wrap skirt I tried to make w/o a pattern, that never really worked out. (unless you are a pole, you cannot wear a rectangle) Sewed it up on three sides, stuffed, and ready to go.
I think I emptied four plastic bags of various batting scraps. Got it all done on a Saturday, and everyone is happy.
