Recycling every little scrap into something fun

After making several stuffed animals of various shapes and sizes, I was left with a very large pile of scraps. The small scraps I naturally added to the stuffing pile. But, some were too big not to use for something else, but not quite big enough for any animal body part.

Gotta say, it was a hit with the guys. Who, rather than play a nice game of catch, decided to pelt each other with it. I was at first horrified, but then very proud of how my hand stitching stood up to that durability test. 

Since the bear ball went over well, I made more. Some are animal inspired, others are little monsters and more just have silly faces.

What do you think, should I add these guys to my shop?
