Hate to throw away those beautiful felt bits? Don't! Find 25+ ways to use up felt scraps, with lots of fun no sew felt projects and simple sewing tutorials.

I love felt, and I love using up scraps, so this post has been a long time coming. I know how good it feels to throw things away and clear space, but try and keep my garbage output to a minimum! The tiniest of felt scraps get turned into stuffing, but the rest of them are all stowed away until I need them. With over 25 ways to use up felt scraps, I think even I could go through my entire scrap stash with this list! If you’re working through the rest of your fabric, check out my list of ways to use up knit fabric scraps, too.

Don’t forget, 100% wool can be composted, just like any natural fiber (I usually buy mine from Benzie Design!). If you are loving some of these projects but don’t have a scrappy stash – you can buy assorted felt scraps that would be good for crafting or splurge and buy some 100% wool scraps.
