I often keep anything larger than a fat quarter for another project. I fold it up and keep it on the shelf.
I find a fat quarter is usually enough for most projects. For anything smaller I either make a scrap fabric project, make a sample to practice a sewing technique, or I shred it to use it as stuffing in a future sewing project.
I have the hardest time getting rid of my favorite scrap fabric or fabric from my favorite sewing projects. I get really attached to the fabric even though I know there is always more fabric.
