I have been saving my small scraps of fabric ( too small for made-fabric or crumbs) and scraps of batting to stuff pet beds. Several friends also save theirs for me. This past weekend I spent several hours cutting them up smaller for stuffing. It is more difficult to work with long strings. I did so much cutting I formed a blister. The result was 3 finished pet beds for donation and one more almost done.
The style with the ridge around does take more time but I know many dogs and cats love to rest their head on or curl up against something. I found the idea at http://shelterbeds.blogspot.com/ even though I did not follow it exactly.
Here is another link with a tutorial.
I also made one Easter dress and matching pink shrugs for granddaughters.
The beautiful warm days are also calling me to work in the yard so I am not sure what I will accomplish today.
Enjoy a few minutes sewing /quilting!
