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.)
