On Etsy since 2020

My superhero name is Prototype.

I prefer to use recycled materials for my projects, resulting in truly one of a kind creations. As of late, I've been deconstructing yarn scraps and carding them into beautiful batts for spinning. I'm also a huge fan of t-shirt modification and working with leather.

I'm the person who unravels thrift store sweaters and re-spins the yarn because one of a kind skeins don't make themselves. I believe it is better to plunge ahead than plan for weeks. When something cool catches my eye, my brain goes into reverse-engineering mode, and I may drop everything to work on it.

I’ve been craft-failing forward for years. I believe that failure isn’t the opposite of success. It is part of it. Every craft project I’ve messed up has been a stepping stone to being a better maker. I want to learn as much as I can about creating things. When you want to create something and don’t know where to start, I’m the person you come to.

Encouraging people to reach their full crafty potential makes me incredibly happy. The “Hey, I made a thing!” feeling is addictive, and I want to share this passion with you.
