My daughter requested that for her birthday I make her friends mermaid dolls as favors. I am a pushover so here they are! :-)

I still have to make her "special" one, but I don't want to see another mermaid for a VERY long time. Made using a Bit of Whimsy pattern!

The Whole Happy Bunch of Mer-people:



Mermaids for the Girls:



Merdudes for the Boys *they are also kick ass pirates*:

I love that the boys have eye patches! Are they pirate mermen?

They are totally mermen. I was trying to make them boyish. My daughter isn't sold on the fact that boys can have dolls, so I tried to make them "tough", hahaha.

HAHAHAHA that is what happens when you run out of skin colored fabric and can't BARE to go to the store ONE MORE TIME to get skin colored fabric and have the lady say I told you so about not buying enough fabric (I like him too. :-) )

I prefer to think of it as a temporary lapse of insanity, hahaha. There will  be more children, but I made the executive decision of if your under the age of 1, you don't  get a doll. That would have added 8 more dolls, and I wasn't down with that!

These are sooo waaay cute!  Are their tails made of snuggle/cuddle flannel?  If so, did you get it at JoAnne's Fabric?

Yes they are made of the snuggle flannel from Joann's, the bodice is also that flannel! :-)

You are awesome to sew all of those little guys and gals. Once the horror of it fades you'll get suckered into doing more. I speak from experience. (Though I've never sewn 16 mer-people!!)

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

These are adorable!  I know a few little boys who would love the pirate mermen and find them quite manly enough!
