Yep, I’m a felt scrap hoarder too. When it comes to crafting and scraps, my worst side comes out, so I put together this list of things to make with felt scraps – both for my own inspiration and for yours!!
Felt scraps are quite versatile, but, yes, every once in a while you need to purge! Go through these crafts, make a few, and then when you’re done (dare I say it?) chuck the rest!

I think that one of the reasons I don’t like to throw out my scraps is that sometimes I actually DO need to make some projects that need small pieces. But they can be cumbersome to store.
I am starting a new system. I allow myself a specific container with felt scraps. The rest I cut down to small sheets (about 15×9 cm) which I don’t qualify as scraps. To make up for those projects that need small pieces, I stock sampler packs of felt that are cost-efficient and super handy (since you get so many colors for those small projects.)
