I made this mermaid doll yesterday. It is the first doll I have made using my own created pattern. I want to add some embellishments or accessories but I am not sure what to add. Any suggestions are welcome.

She is just a little over 8 inches tall Smiley

This is my 2nd mermaid doll-I finished her up Saturday:






thanks for looking

She is lovely just as she is.  The fabrics look gorgeous.
If you wanted to add a bit more bling to her, maybe a bit of green sequins in her hair, or a green glittery eyelash yarn to look like seaweed would be good.  I dont think I would embellish her tail or bra - that fabric is great.

Thanks everyone. Can you believe I found that fabric at Walmart on the $2.00 table? It is a really nice 100% cotton too. I wish now I had bought more  Grin
