Confession time. My drawer of felt scraps is exploding at the seams. I’ve thrown out so much good felt in the past because I just didn’t know what to do with it! It breaks my heart to think about it. I’m in desperate need of new ideas for using up my felt scraps so that they don’t either go to waste or take over my whole studio! To that end, I rounded up 24 super cute crafts to make with felt scraps here for us all to benefit from.

I do use felt scraps for stuffing plushies, but I find it very dense. So it’s only good for small projects or mixed with some polyfil. If you have a great post or idea for using felt scraps, let me know! I’m always on the lookout for new ideas!
I think the multi-coloured roses at the end of the list is a particularly clever way to use up felt scraps since most of us probably have a ton of multi-coloured scraps rather than a drawer full of a single colour.
I also just designed a beautiful embroidered felt moth pattern that’s a great way to use up some scraps!
