Note from shop owner Hi Everyone! Lots of exciting life changes are happening, so I will be hitting pause on my shop for the next month or so until things settle down. I have lots of little creations in the works, and I will get things back up and running as soon as possible! Thank you so much for your support and patience!

Trying to save the ocean one crocheted plastic sea creature at a time!

Tons of the plastic that we use and discard each day inevitably makes its way into the ocean, where the currents break them down into microplastics that are subsequently consumed by animals at every level of the food chain.
I've been crocheting for several years now, designing my own little plush toys out of yarn. Now, my new project is to repurpose type 4 plastic (low density polyethylene), crocheting it into unique plastic sea creatures. I hope to do my part by recycling as much plastic as possible while trying to remind people that all the plastic we waste is negatively affecting our oceans and the creatures that live there.
Each crocheted plastic sea creature in my shop is completely unique and all of them are made of 100% recycled plastic (the insides are even stuffed with plastic scraps I couldn't use for the crocheted portion!) and all net proceeds will be donated to ocean cleanup efforts.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I will not be doing custom orders, as I am limited by the kinds of plastic I have available at any given time, and every plastic bag has a different density, texture, and color, making it difficult to create specific items from certain types of bags.
