First of all a big thank you to ghilie for sending me her marvellous poppet pattern. It was with great trepidation that I decided to attempt something that looked so marvellous and therefore so challenging.
So far everything is going according to plan. That is because ghilie's pattern and instructions are super awesome and easy to follow.
This lovely lady is for my daughter who has asked if I could pretty, pretty please make her a mermaid doll? Here goes.
Stage one: head on a stick. I added some blue and green ribbon and some beads to her hair as I didn't think there was enough contrast between her hair and her skin (which is made of the only fabric I had on hand.)
Ignore the bridge of her nose, it looks like a hole, but its not and I have fixed it.
