A use for 5 more swatches is a plant hanger. Create just like the beanie, join 4 into a ring and put the 5th on a side to close it in. Now add 4 straps, set at the juncture of 2 squares, keeping the open side of the block facing up. The straps need to be the same length. Tie a knot or otherwise fasten them together at the loose ends to allow it to be hung. Sew around a large ring at this end to facilitate hanging. The straps can be small 2 round granny squares joined into a long line, macramé, or heavy twisted cording.
A use for another dozen or so is a tea cozy. Pick some of the larger swatches for the outside and smaller ones for the inside. Outside first: Starting with the larger swatches. Seam 5 together into a ring. Seam another 3 together into a ring. Now seam the two rings together to create a type of open cone shape. Put a single swatch on the small end of the cone. Now repeat this with smaller swatches for the inside without the single swatch on the small end of the cone. Instead run a line of stitching around the small end of the cone and pull tight. Line with quilting batt or fiberfil thickly and seam the bottom edges together.
