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.

Merman #5

He is pretty similar to the last fellow- orange and green with the same fabric for his tail. This merman has peach skin though and his hair is a dark red. His eyes are sage green.

Lots and lots of skeletons on a sunken boat.

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!

And then there were owls

These are the last of the pieces that didn’t get posted before the show.

2 Snowy owls,

2 black, gray, and white owls,

and 3 more with brown in them. These are the ones that are left after the show.

I am working hard to get everything listed into my etsy shop– hopefully I will have that done by the end of today.

Here are some nature pics :-)

A Fashionable Fox Lady

I ran out of time to post all the doll before the show last weekend. I was sewing and finishing, right up to the last minute.

Her skirt is made from Laura Ashley fabric that I am sure I have had since the 70’s.

What a sweet face!

A wool sweater, little purse, and a tin cicada pin. Pretty fancy!

I have loads of new pieces to list into my etsy shop this week- kitties, fax girls, fish, and owls. I better get to work!
