Blue Mermaid


Meet my Merissa. I finished her today. She is the second mermaid using the pattern from Angela Jarecki's class. I made the body with a blue batik and the finger were very difficult to turn. If you have a secret for turning little batik fingers, please share! I struggle with color and a changed her top a few times. I finally decided on the darker colors. I think she might need wings!?! What do you think? This doll was lots of fun. Coloring a blue face was a challenge, but I was satisfied with the way she turned out.

What a beatiful mermaid! I don't think she needs wings. But you could ad a kind of fluke skirt that goes around the back waist area. Use pipe cleaners in the web ridges of the flukes and she could sit too!

Paulette your blue mermaid is to die for! Her face is just gorgeous and I can imagine that it was quite dhallenging to do, but you really did such a great job. I love the fabrics you've chosen. I'm really regretting not taking this class now!
