Mermaid Doll

Here is my first attempt at making a stuffed mermaid doll. I read a book at the library called We Make Dolls 

There was a mermaid in there and thought I would give it a try. Of course I changed it to fit my needs. 

Materials used:

Cotton fabric
Satin Ribbon
Pastel Chalk
Poly-Fil Stuffing
Fabric paint in pearl white
All purpose paint in pink

I sat there for 1hr doing the tail alone. It took me a while to do the scales on her tail. I did have bigger red lips on her but took them off and used fabric paint to make it more fitting for her.   I named her Lucy. 

I know I can make improvements on making my mermaids and I will for all future. I love how she turned out. 

Happy Crafting!
