Making Something Useful
If you quilt, what do you do with all those little scraps of batting that are left? Of course if the pieces are large enough they can be whipped together and used for the purpose intended. But I'm talking about strips about six to seven inches wide, and maybe the full length of the quilt. Since I have wood floors, I've found a very good use for them: dust bunny catchers!! Dust bunnies underneath the bed just jump on these scraps of batting and then you can simply toss the whole fuzzy mess into the trash. Of course I don't recommend going out and buying a package of batting to cut up into dust catchers, but if you have scraps, try it. Oh, they are also good for taking down cobwebs from around the ceiling; just be sure to do that first.
