What to do With Fabric Remnants?

I've been having  bit of downtime here in chez McG, this does not mean that I've stopped DIYing just more of the sitting down doing quiet tasks and planning rather than climbing ladders and making mess with paint.

In my pottering around I decided to dig through my fabric stash.

I found so much that I had forgotten about; and in my aim to de-clutter I am going to attempt to use it all  a good amount of it up in the next few weeks.

So far I have begun: 
A little patchwork picnic blankie
A wee soap bag.

I still want to make:
A hanging shower caddy for when we go camping (with loads of wee pockets to hold everyone's necessaries)

The majority is really thick upholstery/curtain fabric, but none of it is very big, hardly any of it is larger than 0.5m.

Some of it I really love but I'm not sure what to do with it. This leafy print might end up on the bottom of roller blinds in the kitchen.

 I have no idea what to do with this, It was once destined for a playpen I think.

I have no idea what to do with most of this... so I'm reaching out to you guys. Have you any ideas? (there is much more than what is in the photos)

I'd love to make more things to make our camping days run smoother. And it would maybe be a good idea to make some fabric boxes or bags for sorting and storing around the house.

I'll be over at pinterest looking for ideas, in the meantime please do leave me suggestions in the comments below or on our facebook page, pinterest, or over at twitter.
