I love the colourful little bits and pieces of fabric and thread left over from cutting and serging a project and I like to keep them with the hope that they'll come in handy for something some day.

Well, the collection was getting enormous and I was finally forced to either toss them or put them to good use so the kids and I got busy making a monster stuffy.

Here is the pile I started with, it included some small pieces from a cardigan I made for a swap (the grey and the  black and red velvet which are unbelievable soft), scraps and shreds.

Here's the front with cute pink claws. She's got a flat bottom so she can sit up too.

And her back so you can see her tail and wonderful, lovely, colourful fun hair!


This only took a couple of hours and will be the first of many I'm sure. We can't quite figure out what to call them, Shredlets, Scraplings, something like that...

 Grin  Never thought to use scraps of material for hair. I've always used yarn or colored fleece. Very cute monster!

Thanks guys! She's way cuter in person, I'll try to get a good shot of my daughter holding her. That hair is endlessly entertaining, you can't look at it enough. So many little strips of interestingness all jumbled together. And the heart is the softest ever velvet, it's so nice to touch Smiley.

I am totally amazed at how you used stuff most people toss!  The hair is wonderful and the whole thing is just so clever!

I think a Scrapling should be in every home!
