There are many fun crafts that can be make using your leftover fleece scraps. This is a guide about crafts using fleece scraps.
I have little squares of fleece leftover from making blankets. Any suggestions for uses?

I use my scraps to make teddy bears to donate to law enforcement agencies to give to kids who have been in accidents or domestic abuse situations. They're nothing fancy, but they're soft and cuddly. It gives kids something to hold on to. I found a simple one piece pattern on the internet. Cut two pieces the same for front and back. I bought eyes and noses since I was afraid to use buttons. The features could be embroidered if you wanted to. I used my copier to enlarge/reduce the pattern to use with different size scraps. To dress up the bears I put a ribbon bow around the neck and tacked it several places to keep it in place.
If you love to work with polar fleece, like I do, you'll have plenty of scraps. I cut them into 9 inch squares and use as a dishcloth. I was so surprised at how absorbent they are.

I always make cute little things out of fleece, which I love the feel of. There are always little bits left after making no sew fleece mini pillows.
I take the little bit of fleece, and cut little legs on either side of the little scrap, and then pull it to stretch it. It looks like a little bug. You can draw eyes on them or just leave them.
They are a big hit with the little kids and the animals try to steal them all the time.
What can I use fleece scrapes for?
This is a bow for girls, using scraps of fleece. You can vary the size by cutting it wider or shorter or longer.
