|Handmade Crocheted Clams|
Crocheted clams are so cute they would make anyone happy. These handmade clams can be found in the Etsy Shop of Coastal Crochet Crafts.
The expression “Happy as a Clam” is short for “Happy as a Clam at High Tide” (when it can't easily be dug up and eaten). These hand-crocheted clams are always happy because they are soft and cuddly plush toys.
A Seaside Stuffie in Pink
|Crocheted Clam in Pink and Burgundy|
Pink clam in crochet has black plastic animal eyes for features and is stuffed with soft polyfil. She measures just 3 inches across and is surrounded by a 4 inch burgundy clamshell. This clam and her clamshell make a cute two-piece set, as do each of the toy clams featured here.

Clams as Food

Since we all know that 'real' clams are delicious to eat, you might like to know that February 25th is “Clam Chowder Day”. Celebrate by having a bowl of yummy clam chowder of your choice (my favorite is New England Clam Chowder). Just don't let your crocheted pet clam know.
Homemade Clam Dip
For a tasty snack for a party or any get-together, here's a recipe for my personal homemade clam dip to serve with chips or pretzels.
Clams are Fun, Whether as a Delicious Morsel to Eat or as Plush Toys
