a message from a friend and a tiger tattoo

a while ago my friend, Julia, gave me a bag of old clothes to use for scraps.
this is the message that came with it, it’s so sweet:

Yay! Got some stuff for you, will hand it over when i see you or marc. So cool to think of some little ethan type guy running around in my gap jeans that i wore everywhere for 2 years. 🙂

The clothes that you see here are one-of-a-kind handmade items, using recycled clothes and off-cuts. No two pairs are the same, and each pair has its unique story to tell, and a new life to find.

Scraps uses the same patterns and styles for all clothing made, and can comes in X Small, Small, Medium and Large (The clothes will fit boys -and girls- ranging from 1-6 years of age).
