what to do with scraps of fabric

From the Purl Beehive: Emily’s Memory Game

Do you have scraps of fabric laying around from sewing projects? I have tons of it and it is not something I am willing to just toss because I always feel that option is nothing but wasteful; plus I love most of the patterns I pick on all my projects. I store all of my fabric scraps from old projects in a few bins in my craft room and use them from time to time on new sewing projects and to make fabric cards. I love this idea from purlbee, using scraps of fabric to make a memory game! It is super-easy, even a novice sewer can pull it off. And memory is a great and entertaining game for children. hint hint: handmade birthday gift.
