Crocheted Mermaid Set
I was given the task to create and cute little mermaid set for a new born girl who just arrived about a week ago. I took on this challenge. I was given a set of colors and chose these to be as close as I could get.
First, I started making the bottom with the tail. Basically used simple crochet stitches to achieve this. I use double crochet, half double crochet, and single crochet. Not good on the terminology but tried my best. I just go with the flow.
Next I started making the fin and then sewed it on.
I then started on the top. The first one I made was too big so I had to make a new one. I came up with this one.
Then I started on the flowers for the headpiece and the crown. I went through my bead stash looking for pearls but I misplaced them (found them after I already started beading). I found these cute white flowers and pink w/silver beads. I loved them and had to use them.
Started making the head piece and the crown. I couldn't remember how to make the crown so I used a little bit of help from Youtube. I used a tutorial from Bobwilson123. Click here for her tutorial. I did make it my own and changed it up a bit to fit my needs.
Once everything was crocheted and done I attached the beads and flowers with clear fishing thread. This way its hidden and won't make things bulky.
To finish it off I was asked if I could attach the little girls name on it. I tried and it came out great.
