    Nursing pads – washable, resuable and comfortable. For pieces of fabric too small to use, I use them to stuff beds for animals at the local shelter.

    Patches for worn items. Some favorite things are now more patch than original fabric, which can lead to philosophical ruminations if one is so inclined.
