a mermaid doll for someone lovely

17 July, 2015 ·

It’s a long time since I made a doll in this style and I think it’s the first time ever that I’ve made a mermaid doll. This one is for someone lovely who looks a bit like a mermaid and who I could easily believe secretly turns into one when no one is looking.

I made her a little ocean blue mohair shawl for if she is feeling shy (or cold).

And a seaweedy green one too.

Embroidering her tail took ages and ages! But it was a lovely peaceful thing to do.

Enjoy your very long journey to meet your new owner, little mermaid! I hope you get the chance to peek down from the plane at the oceans below.
