Paula is an Australian crocheter who formerly ran the Etsy shop FlamingPot. The Instagram and Facebook pages under that same name are still up, although they have not been active since 2019.
Paula began to crochet in October 2012 to help her through the grieving process of losing her stillborn daughter, named Gabrielle, and she has been crocheting avidly ever since.
“Gabrielle gave me talent that I never knew I have. Every crochet I make, I always dedicate to her, and to her rainbow sister, Giselle, our bundle of joy.”

FlamingPot is most noteably known for the fun and unique donut shape items made! From realistic looking pretend donuts like this, to donut pillows, this is the look that started and fueled Paula's business!

Along with the lifesized play pretend donuts, FlamingPot also made larger than life donut pillows! They are perfect for accent pillows on a couch, or outside use on the patio!

Another creative use of the donut design is with these donut necklaces! Whether for creating a funky asthetic or using as a stim toy, these donut necklaces are so fun and a great addition to a fun fit!
