Default Small peices of fabrics

I have lots of leftover fabric pieces; most of them have flowers on the surface. Some of them are out of fashion, but, I donít want to throw them and hope to make a thing by them, I thought maybe a short skirt or bag but most of the fabric is too small.
Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks!

Is there enough fabric for a cloth napkin? Another idea I haven't had time to try, but that uses scraps is reusable sandwich bags. Or you can do this: Plastic Wrap Alternative: DIY Beeswax Cotton Wraps | My Healthy Green Family

I've made shopping bags using multiple types of fabric. I've also pieced them together with some fleece to make cat beds for the local shelter.

I made these last week, using a small circle of fabric, and they work great! http://www.greenideareviews.com/2012...-does-it-work/

I'm not sure where I saw them, but how about fabric fortune cookies. Chinese New Year is Feb 10 I believe.

Fabric "yo yo's" are a good way to use up small scraps of fabric. You can use them to make lots of crafty things:

I don't know how big your pieces are, but how about square lavender sachet pillows or eye pillows filled with flax seed? You can stack them and tie with pretty ribbon for nice little girlfriend gifts!

Key fobs are really popular and don't take much fabric.
