Using Leftovers

Measure each leftover batting piece and write the measurement, brand, and fiber content on a piece of notepaper (i.e. 54×22", Fairfield, cotton). Pin the notepaper to the outside of the folded batting remnant. Then when a project requires a smaller batting piece, you can quickly determine which of your leftover pieces will work best.
