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!
And check out this page for a list of all my favourite tools for working with felt.
Crafts to Make with Felt Scraps:
3. Hexie Pincushion
What is it about hexagons that’s so irresistible?! (The link for this pattern is no longer available but I’m keeping the photo here because it’s just such a sweet idea. And I think the DIY is fairly self explanatory from the photo.) The original source is modernhandcraft.com
You could use felt for these little hexies too.
These are so sweet! They could easily be lavender sachets too.
Who doesn’t need tiny felt pizza?!
Dessert for the tiny embroidered pizza above!
This post has 5 different pie designs, including pumpkin and blueberry.
This design is my own creation. You could use the pattern to make a number of different projects like a pincushion, ornament or keychain!
This is a great way to use up a lot of different coloured felt scraps. I love the idea of using it as an alternative to a curtain.
25. Tiny Bunny
I recently designed this super cute and tiny felt bunny. 🙂
You can easily make these mini mermaids using felt and yarn scraps, and how adorable are they?! This is a new sewing pattern available in the shop. 🙂
This list should definitely help you make a dent in your felt scrap stash!
