My daughter in law made the most creative picture. I had to share. So sweet.

I started working on my mermaid doll about three years ago and today I finished her. She is cloth with paper clay sculpted over the top. I wanted her skin tone to be sea colors. She has costume jewelry for her crown. I used an old doily with fish for her bra. Her necklace is made from small rocks with a metal fish. I do not have a name for her right now but I think I will sell her on ebay.

I had made the doll some long time ago but thought it would be fun to dress her. I used and old quilt and sewed it by hand to add to the primitive nature of the doll. Stitched some felt eyes on and added a big blue tear. I think she is really sad looking and begging to be loved. Her hair is embroidery floss and her nose it just plain stitched in. She makes me laugh if she was not so sad looking. hahaha
