I'm Kondo ing (throwing stuff out) and today is throw out craft crap you don't need. I accidentally shrunk a cashmere jumper and its felted lovely - the front of the jumpers no good as it's got paint on it but there's a 15 by 10 inch square on the back before it tapers (plus sleeves)

Too small for one I'd use.

Have you ever done a felted animal thingy? I haven't but I think they look lovely.

If the sleeves are a wearable size, you can make nice wrist warmers out of them. Just cut to length and cut a thumb hole in, basically. May require some hemming or neatening of edges.

Can you sew motifs on the paint splattered side to make use of that side too? Somehow using up any other craft crap you are throwing out smile

Can you make a small bunny bag for the Woolly Hugs Easter craft sale? Then not only is the craft crap out of your house, the end result is too!

If you want to do an animal, what about this? I bet it would lovely with the felted cashmere.

I love the look of that teeny bunny, it's gorgeous smile

Soup - what's a bunny bag? I don't actually know what Wooly Hugs is and I'm not likely good ebough at sewing for someone else to want it grin

For very small children?

Bunny bag for craft sale is lovely idea smile

I've seen some lovely slippers made from felted jumper sleeves: felt for the soles, arms turn into the top of the foot and leg.

Use the square for the back of a cushion cover - I think I read this idea on the Attic24 blog.

Disclaimer: whenever I have a good idea for using up odds and ends of material I end up buying more ... the bunny bag is a much better fit with the plan to declutter!

Bunny bag.

Anyway, it was just a suggestion.
