Crochet Shark Pin

I’m sure by now you are aware of my fascination with sea creatures and that I’ll most likely continue making them. So it’s no surprise that I made a crochet shark pin:Shark Pin - Pops de Milk

Shark Week starts on Sunday and, being a shark lover (though still scared of them), I decided to make a cute little pin. Now I can strut around town showing the world that I think sharks are awesome!Shark Pin - Pops de Milk

  2. Ah! You make the cutest stuff! I love a lot of sea creatures, too, even though I wouldn’t consider myself a lover of the sea. I don’t swim well and I only like the beach at night. Well whatever. Sharks are cool and that pin is a great idea. 🙂

  3. Thank you as much for this project Sharks are the mascot of the school my nephew coaches at the school we grew up at beings Sharks… Most the hats will have them on them and I’m sure lots of other things . Hope you have a Merry Christmas a great New Year…Thank You again.
