About

An adorable array of crochet miniatures and plushes to delight the masses.

Pocket Sushi is a one-man arts & crafts operation established in 2012 and based out of Pittsburgh, PA.

Amigurumi, Japanese crocheted or knitted dolls, had always been something that interested me and through a fellow hobbyist's website dedicated to the craft I taught myself how to create my own. Eventually I turned to Etsy to sell my creations, hoping to fill that financial gap that a recent lay off had left behind. Since then, Pocket Sushi has exploded into what it is now, with over 3,000 individually hand-made items sold.

My handmade works are free of animal products, only made with polyester, acrylic, cotton, and bamboo-based materials. Every item is crafted in a smoke- and animal hair-free environment.

Please enjoy the works in my shop, maybe even order a trinket or two to brighten someone's day, be it your own or a loved one's. Lastly, thank you for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Available at an additional cost. Please contact me before placing your order if you would like the item to be gift wrapped.

Sizing details and photo accuracy

Please refer to the photos for each product for a gauge of scale. I do my best to depict them as accurately as possible and if you have any questions about them, please message me before buying!

All product photos are stock images--the actual product is made-to-order or recreated after its predecessor is sold. I use the best of my abilities to make all renewed products as accurate to the original as possible.

Custom orders, art trades, and (v)blog reviews

Custom Orders
I can do custom versions of all items currently available in the shop. This means you may order any item in a custom color or color pattern. Please contact me if you wish to create a custom item. At this time I do not offer completely original custom amigurumi!

Art Trades
Due to having been scammed on multiple occasions, I currently am not accepting trades. Sorry!

(V)Blog Reviews
Sorry, but I do not offer free products in exchange for reviews/exposure on your blog or YouTube channel. If you would like to review a product of mine, please purchase it. Thank you!

Order processing time

Processing is typically 1 - 3 days for pins, stickers, charms, & other ready-to-ship (RTS) items and 5 - 10 days for handmade or made-to-order (MTO) items.

Tracking order and shipping progress

If your order contains any MTO items, please visit https://trello.com/b/vCIiYayT to see where your order stands in the queue (allow 24 - 48 hours for your order to appear).

All U.S. orders come with a USPS tracking code so that you may keep up with your order's status. While international orders DO come with a tracking code, it only guarantees activity within the United States and may not work once the package leaves the country.

Shipping costs to Italy

Due to the strict customs regulations in Italy regarding handmade goods and items marketed as toys, Italian customers are charged a slightly higher shipping fee. This shipping fee covers the base shipping cost as well as insurance, which is required by Italian customs for restricted items.

Weekend & holiday shipping

Orders placed and paid for on Sundays and holidays are shipped within the next 5 - 7 business days. Items shipped during the holiday shopping season (Nov - Dec), even as Priority mail, are not guaranteed to arrive on time. Please order as early as possible if you are buying my products as gifts!

Problem with your order?

Should you encounter any issues with your order, please refrain from writing feedback until everything has been sorted out. The last thing I want is an unhappy customer!

Invoices and receipts

You will automatically be emailed a digital invoice after your payment has been processed. If you require a physical copy, please let me know in your buyer's notes or immediately after you order via private message.

Crochet patterns

All of my patterns are private and not available for sale or public use. Please use Etsy's search engine or Google if you are seeking available patterns.
