Functional Use for Scraps

We quilters or crafters when going to workshops, retreats, etc. carry a lot of items with us. Even when traveling for work or personal pleasure, a number of items we carry are much easier to lug around in their own container or carrying case. Making cases, holders, or containers is an excellent way to use up our scraps. I made a bag for my iron with scrap fabric and quilted heat resistant fabric for the lining. There are a number of patterns and tutorials on the Internet or you can take your favorite bag/tote pattern and add heat resistant fabric as the lining to create your own iron travel bag.

I found a pattern for a travel toothbrush holder at thetraintocrazy.com using a towel and ribbon. Share with us some functional items you have made as a way to make good use of your scraps.
