I had a client ask me to make them a quilled lobster, but they wanted it in blue shades. I had never made a lobster before so I wanted to test out a pattern, but use a color scheme that was more fitting for a lobster so that in case it came out decent, I could sell or give it away. Blue lobsters are amazing, but rare and not necessarily what people think of when the word “lobster” is mentioned.

I browsed the internet looking for reference photos and ideas and came across a lobster someone had made. I used the photo to build a basic pattern, while incorporating my own techniques and style into it. The lobster I found on the internet was made with corrugated paper, and since you can’t buy corrugated paper in the shade that I needed, I had to improvise by using a crimping tool.

This was rather time consuming and I’m not sure if it really made that much of a difference in the end. This particular lobster was never fully completed with a mouth, eyes, or antennae, but a woman saw it and loved it and now it’s living in Bremen, Maine.

In the future, since lobsters are such a popular item here in my home state of Maine, I think I’ll make a few of these up to keep on hand.

Here is the Blue Lobster, in case you’re curious.
