The feet on Santa made me think of a fish tail, which got me thinking mermaid thoughts…

I didn’t have any pinky tone wool, so I dyed some. 3 different woolen fabrics- a knit, a thin twill and a soft, loose woven fabric. One of the things I like about dyeing is the different shades of color I get.

Here she is, cut out, with another Santa face and my mostly finished teddy bear…


and here she is!


She is all wool fabric and stuffed with wool. Her hair was a challenge until I remembered this yarn.
I bought it August 2004- I knew I would need it! See Rosa’s
comment? I never forgot it!
