Would anyone have any ideas for alternative uses for shoulder pads? I have quite a collection. I can't find anything on the Web. Thanks.

If you have lost weight or due to a mastectomy, the shoulder pads make excellent padding for filling up bras.
Cut them into tiny and stuff them into pillows or teddy bears.
You could use a smaller one as a pin cushion by folding it in half and sewing or gluing closed and then even sew a bit of elastic to it to use as a wrist pin cushion.
Fold in half, sew almost all the way closed, fill with cat nip and finish sewing closed as a cat toy ;-)
Use as cleaning sponges.
I know this sounds weird but depending on the shape and size you could cut and sew rubberized cloth, such as baby changing cloth, on one side or simply cut the rubberized cloth to fit and place on the crotch of your panties and then the pad on top of that to use when having a period or if you 'leak'. They would be easily washable and you can use over and over again while saving oodles of money on disposable pads!
