Crochet Tutorial: Clam Shell Amigurumi with Pearl Bead

Crochet Tutorial: Clam Shell Amigurumi with Pearl Bead

Today, I am happy as a *clam!* I am about to *open up* to all of you and share with you how much you are all *chowder* this world! When I face a new project or new pun, I think “Nadia, the creative world is your *oyster!*” I am not trying to dispense huge *pearls* of wisdom here. No, it would be a *clam-ity* if I started doing that! Instead I will put my heart and hand *mussels* to better use and make great projects for y’all! And *shucks!* maybe you like a few! I am trying to do as many fun and fashionable projects before my baby arrives. You know, the whole *clam* before the storm idea…anyway, I better *clam* down and get to work! I will just put on some hits by the *Wu-Tang Clam* and get started! Happy Hooking Everyone! I really hope none of you have to *pull apart* your projects today!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this clam:

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
