Oh that Purple Hair!

I love to play with unconventional hair colors with the mermen. After all, who knows what color hair they have?! This fine fellow is dark but will never be able to hide in the depths of the sea because of his colorful tail.

Still with the skeletons. I’m imagining all these skeletons partying at the bottom of the ocean.

His purple fins match his purple hair.

Blue Merman

I’ve been working on all the different stages of mermen. I have a few sewed up and ready to finish. I will post them as I get them done. I also cut out a whole lot of new mermen bodies (and also some other fellows) and I’m in the middle of dyeing them up. Here is the first merman finished-

I am excited about some new African Wax Print fabrics that I bought recently- I think they will make amazing merman tails.

His blue “skin” is a bit mottled but I decided that was fine for a merman. I just love the fish!

Last Doll of the Year

This is the last merman and the last doll of 2021. My etsy shop will be closed for shipped items from 12/21 to 1/1/2022.

This hair fabric has always looked like kelp to me so perfect for a merman’s hair.

He has another one of the bone buttons.
