I was in a swap recently and my partner has some great ideas for the type of poppet she wanted. One of her ideas was a mermaid. I've always wanted to make one but was never sure about how to make the tail. I thought I would give it a shot and this is what I came up with.



I just couldn't pass up trying to make a tail with that fabric. It looked like scales to me. And for her hair I found the little bubbles in the party department and thought it looked a bit like the seaweed with the little bulbs on them you find in the ocean. She even had her own offering of a big ol pearl for her new friend.

Wonderful, such a pretty poppet.  I agree the fabric is perfect for the tail.  Love the oyster and pearl too.

You're right, that fabric just screams mermaid tail Smiley Her hair is gorgeous as well. I'd say you had one lucky partner Smiley

You did such a great job!  The pearls in her hair are a nice touch.
