In the mean time I've started another doll....a mermaid. The pattern is called Scylla designed by Barbara Schoenoff.

Her body is made with a lace over a fabric lining. I was thinking of using a lace remnant that I found at my local store. I thought it might be perfect over a green fabric that I have that has a gold fleck on it's surface.
I think the challenge will be balancing that tail above her body:) The fluke is padded with quilt batting and slightly quilted so I'm not sure how it will work out.
If anyone has made this doll before let me know:)
You know that expression..."the best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry"......well....
I laid out the pattern on the green cotton fabric and I was short by two inches....arrrggghhh!!!! I could piece it I guess but I decided on plan B.
Same fabric...same maker...but in blue. My son thinks this looks more fishy:)
I'm linking up with The Needle &Thread Network today...go over and visit and see some remarkable work going on.
