Hi! I’m Michelle Adam and I started Scrapcycling in 2011.
I am an MFA Fashion Design graduate. I am interested in combining my passion for all things artistic and my commitment to environmental issues by setting up this shop to sell attractive, functional items made from my scraps! This way I get a clean studio without sending things to the landfill and you get reasonably priced items for yourself or others.
Being resourceful is very rewarding to me and I am often inspired by the ways people make the most of what is around them and try to make something out of next to nothing. I like to make a game out of it by trying to see how much I can create from irregular pieces of fabric that others would consider useless. When I look at my scraps I see an opportunity to reinvent and re-purpose and I hope you will enjoy the results as much as I do.
Would you like an item in a different color or size? Would you like to send me items that have been damaged so I can transform them into something new like a baby quilt or bonnet or a market bag? Please let me know your custom requests and we can discuss the details!
