Hi all

I have been making mermaids – Bubbles is a lovely small-ish mermaid which is designed to hang on the wall, or as a mobile.  They are quite quick and easy to make, very similar to Rainbow Dancers.

For painting the face, use the tutorial for Lavinia.  I used a mixture of fibes for the hair, and put a string of beads and some fringe around the waist.  The little boobs are suffolk puffs (yo-yoes).  A little piece of ribbon for hanging them.

Like to have a go at making one of these?  As a featured blog doll, the pattern is discounted on my website.

While you are there, check out the companion quilt!  I Love Mermaids is a fantastic qult I made several years ago, featuring these little mermaids and undersea creatures.

I have also put the pattern for this quilt at a discount price.
