I always remove the shoulder pads from new outfits. I would like to find out some uses to recycle these shoulder pads.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I did a couple of things with them.
Most favorite use, make angels. Get small whisk or wooden spoon, place handle up. Wrap the pad around the handle, folding in the side edges like sleeves. Glue or stitch down, gluing back to handle as well. Add a bead or wooden ball head with face, add hair and angel wings. If desired, put candies in the whisk end and wrap with plastic wrap, fastening with a ribbon for a small treat or table favour. On the spoon bowl I write a short quote about angels in permanent marker.
When traveling, use them to cushion luggage straps. Place on your shoulder before hoisting that heavy bag with the shoulder strap, or wrap around the strap on hand-carried bags. (04/01/2007)
I line helmets with them for extra protection. (08/20/2008)
Thought you might be able to make a quilt out of the shoulder pads. (10/12/2008)
