Hi, my name is Kátia, wife to an amazing husband and mother of 3 silly kids. Born and raised in Brazil, and moved to the US when I was 23.
When did you first start creating? / How did you discover your talent?
I learned how to crochet in 2008, but after moving to another state and having kids, I stopped. Then right before Christmas 2015 I wanted to make some dolls for my daughter, and after I posted them on my Facebook page, some people started to asking me if I would make some for them too, so I decided to open an Etsy shop and see where it would take me.
Me and my husband were playing with some ideas then we combined the first 3 letters of my name (Kat) with Brazil = Brazikat
What are your favorite items?
I really love all the items I have made so far, but if I had to pick my top 3, it would be the Llama hat, Snow White set and the Deer set.
Why do you think people should continue to make things by hand?
I love make unique things, I love when a customer chooses the colors, details and I know I'm making something special just for them. I love handmade things, and I think we should support more business like that.
Are you an artist full-time or part-time?
Full time mom and part-time crochet artist.
What are you currently working on?
A little monkey set for a lady that is having her first baby boy in September,
What are you doing when you’re not creating?
Making memories with my family
