Katydids Kritters combines functionality and whimsy to create animal themed items for the home. The artist's love for fabric is reflected in her work. She can sit for hours choosing the textures, colors, and prints that go into each piece. Even the thread is chosen to complement the overall look. She does all of the pattern making, designs,cutting, and sewing. From the bricks in the doorstops to the fabric on the pillows, she reuses and transforms materials using techniques from a century ago. The raw edge applique adds character to each piece and mimics how fabric would have frayed before glues and stabilizers were used. All of the pillows and doorstops are made using high quality vintage and new upholstery fabrics, with bits of upcycled apparel and quilting fabrics for facial features. Each piece is hand finished to form a seamless look. Because most of the materials used are remnants, samples, or vintage fabrics, each pillow, doorstop, and draft snake is an original piece. Buttons are sourced from around the world and made from a variety of materials, including coconut shells, abalone, metals, and wood. The artist particularly enjoys working with prints and frequently uses fabrics with different aesthetics (e.g., a futuristic print with a vintage brocade) to blend into a new style that crosses generational boundaries. She also creates a line of children's items (pillows, blankets, and "boo-boo" packs) that are animal-shaped and themed, made of washable fabrics. These items are also original, hand cut items that are designed and sewn by her.
