repurposing fabric scraps

since i’ve been working on so many projects (and screwing up so many projects) i’ve been trying to find new way to use scraps.  i found this project that is super cute and i’m putting it on my to-do list:  http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/10/tutorial-scrap-buster-fall-pillow.html.  additionally, i have been preparing a few packages to take to the post office and found it rather helpful to use my un-usable fabric scraps as packaging for breakables.  (sorry mom, a little preview to your birthday gift).

so, what do you do with your fabric scraps??
