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 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!
