How about making a special pair of booties for that special baby? They are sure to become a keepsake.
I have tons of felt scraps from various felt projects and couldn't bring myself to throw them away. So, using only scraps, I made a variety of felt food for my daughter, using basic doll stuffing as filler for some of the "puffier" food.
Any type of food can be made, depending on the size and color of your scraps. Fabric scraps can certainly be used too. The simpler the better when it comes to children.

I made Christmas stockings from felt for my grandkids when they were born. I want to remove an iron-on applique on one of them. Any suggestions for doing this without ruining the stocking?
Make a new stocking.
I have 1000s of small sizes of scrim felt 2 inches to 4 inches square plus 100s of cones and 3 foot long tubes. I also have cones of yarn for 1/3 of the whole sale price.
I want to give them to schools and park districts in my area, but they don't know what to use them for. I need ideas for these items. Maybe the cones could be made into x-mas trees or angels, yarn for dog Scotties, felt?
Any information on other crafts for these items will help. I would also like information on craft sites that help show how to make things with the items.
I hate to throw out this material ever year.
Can E-mail photos if needed.
