You may use them to crochet granny squares and assemble them to bright pillowcases.
To make them look more professional you can choose pillowcase back color to be in shadows of your
furniture. Just take a look at great variety of colors clicking a link below. Now imagine what a beautiful pillowcase you can make instead of just throw out that yarn ends :)
Sounds reasonable? Then go ahead and have a lot of inspiration!

You can use even old sweaters :)
