Crafturday- Mermaid Friends

A few weeks ago I bought a pattern on Etsy from a seller called Bit of Whimsy Dolls, for this mermaid doll. Bit of Whimsy sells easy sewing patterns for a variety of toys and small dolls; I whipped up this doll from my scrap bag on a snow day. It took about an hour.

I made this mermaid out of scraps too (it's a very scrap-friendly project). She was made to match the doll quilt you see behind her, itself made from the scraps of a larger project.  I still have bits of the shell and tone-on-tone peach fabric left; maybe I'll make a little doll for the doll!

Bit of Whimsy has a lot of great patterns; I want to try the Jane doll next. She's designed to look like a Jane Austen-type Regency lady, but also looks relatively easy to sew. I'll let you know how it goes!
