Years ago, maybe 18?, I purchased this mermaid pattern. It is a Kalico Kastle - Sea Angles pattern - not my design.
Anyway I used to make these 2' long mermaids for friends and sold a few at little local arts & crafts shows. They were fun to make and I loved the smiles they brought. After a while I couldn't find the knit fabric I loved for their skin so I quit making them and moved on to other projects.
When I found new "skin" fabric earlier this year I decided to make one for an auction raising $ for my favorite website, Bonaire Talk. Then I couldn't find the curly hair I used to find at Michaels or Joanns Fabrics and decided to experiment with yarn.
This picture shows how nicely the yarn is for mermaid hair. I think I'll do MY hair next.
All she needs now is her bikini top.
What do you think? :-)
