Uses for Miscellaneous Fat Quarters (Gift Ideas)

I finally cleaned out my craft closet and found a whole bunch of children/baby print fat quarters (pieces of fabric about 18" x 21"). I don't quilt, so I'm not sure how I got them, but I have a whole stack of them and some have really cute patterns. It seems like I should be able to make something useful out of them to give as gifts this holiday season, but I'm stumped for ideas.

Can anyone help?

How about making potholders? Placemats?

How about making sachets? Or you could cut them into different shapes and stuff them and make tree ornaments out of them.

Have a happy Christmas!

Check http://www.nancysnotions.com under her free patterns for the 10 minute totables. These are great little bags and so easy to make. She says to quilt them, but I have not been doing that, and they are still turning out nice. There are also patterns around for little fabric credit card wallets that you get 2 out of 1 fat quarter - great gifts!

You could sew several pieces together to make a quilt for a child. Just finish it off with bias tape or strips of a contrasting material.

Fat quarters, depending upon where they were purchased, can be very expensive to buy. The least expensive ones are usually about $.80, and more exclusive ones are $6-7 apiece. If you want to turn them into cash, you can list them on EBay (I would list them all together if they are all baby prints) and quilters will buy them.

How about doll clothes, doll blankets that are tied with yarn. Or aprons for a child who helps you in the kitchen or potting bench. Tote or drawstring bags are great , too.

Beanbags? Maybe tiny little drawstring bags for kids' treasures--or you could fill them with a crayon pack, matchbox cars, sidewalk chalk, jacks and a ball, candy...speaking of candy you could fill an empty jar (plastic) with Christmas candy and cover the lid with a quarter and some matching ribbon. HTH.
