This mermaid features a different style of hair and she has stitched starfish detailing. Highlghts in metaalic thread. Her tail is layered scales with metallic touches. She also sports several tattoos, all hand embroidered freehand, an anchor, a swallow and a heart. She wears a shell bra and her tail is adorned with seaweed strands and pink anemonies.
A fifteen inch doll, handmade entirely from felt, using doll patterns from Patti Medaris Culea’s book, Creative Cloth Doll Collection. Patterns are slightly adapted to use with the medium of felt. The face details are created using the needle felting technique. All clothes, barring the shoe pattern, are my original designs and ideas.
