He has tropical island tattoos- palm trees and Hula dancing!
The fins are made from a batik-style fabric that has a watery look and seems perfect for a merman.
I picture this merman swimming around in tropical aqua waters. He’d be well camouflaged in that environment.
Octopus, octopodes, octopi, octopuses!
He’s got bling! Really, just a few jewels on his belt.
He has tattoos from the same toile as the last one but a different section of the fabric. Lots of sea battles to choose from.
It has been a while since I finished any dolls. Finally, I’ve got something to show. I’ve got 6 mermen in progress. Here is the first to be finished.
There will be lots of ship imagery ahead.
This is the last lady for now.
I have really enjoyed making all the bird appliques and playing with my variegated threads.
Tail ends, since they wrap around the side.
She has some fancy hair.
And here is all the ladies that I still have. I will try to get them up on etsy this weekend.
Summer time, summer lady in a summer dress.
Here are all the details and lots of close-ups.
Most of the materials are cashmere so she is SO soft!
I was very tempted to make her a flower fairy and put little wings on her back but I settled for 2 little leaves instead.
Lots and lots of kitties!
She has the same palette as the Bird Lady- guess I’m in the mood for my favorite color combination- red and green.
She is dressed a little warmly for the heat wave that is coming through, isn’t she!
Some detail photos-
And this is what I think of as felt lace-
Here are all the angles of the bird coat-
I started her back in April and gave her grey hair but it just wasn’t working for me. The purple hair is just the thing!
