About plaidypusfashion

Sales 67
On Etsy since 2011

Plaidypus was created to offer funky and eco friendly accessories to those who just want something a little different.

Plaidypus was created from the need for homemade gifts for family and friends. Eventually, someone said, "Hey, you could sell this somewhere!" So I did.

It started with crocheted fingerless mittens, and expanded to using old clothing from the ARC to experiment with new patterns and new ideas. Ever since then I've been looking for ways to upcycle old t-shirts, sweaters, jeans, etc. into funky clothing and accessories.

Plaidypus is currently being carried in Wadoo Gifts in Fort Collins, CO. We have also be found attending a few different Colorado and Minnesota arts fairs, such as the Fort Collins Annual Sustainable Living Fair, ArtStir Denver, Colorado College Arts and Crafts Fair, Austin Artworks Festival, Rivertown Arts Festival, and Do It Green Green Gifts Fair.

As a graduate student working on her dissertation in psychology and public health research, I haven't had as much time to focus on fairs but you can still find me here on Etsy or in Wadoo Gifts!
