Fabric Scraps Obsession, Studio

Little Scrappy People

Back around the beginning of November my blogging buddy in Pennsylvania, Claudia@claudiamcgillart posted this post about how she was making little people out of recycled eye medicine vials:

Tiny People Made from Eye Drops Vials

I loved how she was doing some very creative recycling with individual eye medicine vials that most people would have discarded into the trash.

Around the same time I was in the process of cleaning up my fabric scrap collection and pulling out the tiny pieces I was likely never to use. I started to discard the scraps into the trash bin (gasp) but then I realized they were the right size for Claudia’s eye medicine vial people (or other art projects she does with small fabric scraps).

So I sent her a package of small to tiny fabric scraps.

Then last week (or so…time is getting foggy at the end of the year) I received a wonderful surprise in the mail from Claudia – my own collection of little eye medicine vial people.

Here’s a close up of the little people in groupings of three:

For now I have them all hanging out on my white board ledge in the studio:

They definitely make the boring whiteboard more interesting!
