Blue Mermaid

I love how she turned out.

It took me several tries to get the faces and the hair to a place I liked.

More embroidered scales. I used white silk buttonhole thread to keep the dark blue threads in place. The buttonhole thread originally came from my mom’s sewing collection!

The back of her tail is plain.

I have one more mermaid but she needs to go back to the worktable. Hopefully I can show her to you in a few days. I’ve also dyed some more ombre fabrics and am so excited to sew them up!
