Just a quick question, about making pillows. I have tons of material and was thinking about making some travel pillows for the kids. Because of all of the fleece scraps I have, I was thinking of using them as the stuffing. Has anyone tried this? I hate throwing out the scraps, but believe they are no longer useful. I made doll quilts (patchwork) out of as much of it as I could -- but have 3 large garbage bags of just scraps.
Other suggestions are welcome too.
Please tell me if you think this might work!
So little time, sew much to do...........

I think nice soft fleece would work fine. You might want to try cutting it into strips if it is a bigger piece to give the pillow more poof.

If you have an old car like i do, and the shoulder harness irritates your neck, here is a marvelous way to use up 2 8 X 8 squares of polar fleece.. Sew a pair of pieces of velcro to each of 2 sides of these and then wrap them around that portion of the belts in the car... I saw some a friend of mine had purchased in the auto dept for her car and copied them.. Boy, what a difference it makes.. Specially for a shorty like me.. 5 feet even..
