Before she could even talk, Ellie Heath spent hours drawing pictures. When she grew older, the 15-year-old discovered the joy of sewing. She says she finds it calming.
She started out making small objects, like jewelry and soft playthings. Over time, she began making clothing.
Her love of the creative work led her to open a business. Three Blue Bunnies is the name of her company, which makes what she calls "wearable art."
My definition of wearable art is something that makes you feel unique. It's one of a kind, often handmade, she explains. She sells her creations in farmers markets, at sales for local churches, and other places.
All the pieces Ellie creates are made of used or donated fabrics.
She says there are 21 billion tons of cloth material in waste landfills in the United States. The teenager hopes to reduce that amount through her work.
She works a lot with jean jackets, renewing them with artistic additions. The process starts with finding cloth material that looks good with the jackets.

Then, I find out the design that works on it through trial and error or maybe just the design comes to me, she explains.
Ellie credits her mother for pushing her children to develop their artistic skills.
My mom has always been a huge supporter of the arts, she says. She's always given us this place to express our creativity...
Ellie's mom, Amy Heath, is a former school art teacher. She says creativity feeds kids' brains.
I think it's very important for children to have as many opportunities as possible and be inspired by as many objects and people, Heath says. She praises Ellie's membership in the local business alliance in Maryland, where they live.
