I loev mythological creatures...which could explain why I have joined 3 swaps that involve them these last few months.
My partner for this swap listed mermaids as one of her favorite mythological creatures and I knew that I had to make her a doll. This doll took so much time and hand work. I definitely bit off almost more than I could chew, but I am so in love with her!
I also sent her a small mermaid pouch to hold her new swap cards, vintage yarn that reminded me of mermaid hair (too bad I didn't find the yarn before I made the doll's hair), some candies, and a cute dragon ornament that met at Cost Plus World Market and knew needed to go live with my partner.
