What to make with this scrap

I'm making my SO a blanket...the store had 1/2 a yard of one of the fabrics left so I took it but now I dont know what to do with it

Our sewing machine is broke and my skills are pretty lack luster but Mabel already has enough fleece tugs, and i'd like to show off the pattern a bit.

this is it...

Sam you could make a pillow cover or a blanket. Something like this...
Dorm Crafts - Finishing the Fleece Pillow

or

Helping Little Hands: Single Layer No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Blankets Tutorial
I have seen people do a braided version of a scarf so that could be an option too. (maybe a certain Doberman would like a winter scarf!!)

It's not enough for it's own worthwile blanket really (if I do it like the one im making which is a traditional fleece no sew knotted fringe)...I've thought about a pillow. Hmmm

I made my husband one of those a few years back and I loved it. It was camo and Capone loved it so much. I believe when we moved into our new house we left it at my inlaw's house for Capone when they watched him. I should make a new one. It was so much fun making it and I am not the least good with a needle so I liked this option.

I've made a few friends some and want to make mabel one, he saw me and asked for (so ugly) star wars on one side lizards on the other...

Mine and mabel's will be made of half fleece half cuddle fabric/microfiber....we get the best

I'm making it right now lol

Possibly...not sure how she'd like it but I could maybe find a dober friend.

A fleece collar sounds fun but no sewing machine.

Keep the ideas coming guys I have lots of scraps around to mess with.

I'm a sucker for those little handmade hand-warmers.
Like a little rice filled pillow. I put a little bit of peppermint or orange oil in them.
They'd be small enough to hand sew and you could show of the fabric in little chunks.

Joann fabrics has soooooooo many cute fabrics, I get 2 yards for adults and 1 yard each dir dogs or kids and make the no sew fleece blankets inexpensive but awesome gifts

You can make pillows, dog coats/sweaters, whatever you dream up lol

Love the ideas guys and by all means keep sharing for others or the future, I found a 3/4 yard of brown fleece I forgot I had and am just going to make a mini fringe blanket for him, his lizards have their own blankets lol so now him and his favorite bearded dragon can almost match

Know anyone with caged animals? Ferrets, rats, etc? Hammocks and pouches have a HUGE market in the rodent (and weasel) world. I'm gunna have to buy some more for my feeders.
