I made this for a friend who loves anything Disney!  It's the first mermaid I ever made and really wanted to see how tail would turn out.  I'm really  happy with the way she turned out! It's also the first time I've brushed out yarn for the hair.  I had to use so much yarn for the hair! lol and now I have a tone of extra yarn fluff, not sure what else to call it and I also don't know what to do with it.  Can it be used for needle felting??
Anyway, here she is, my friend LOVED her!

As you can see, she's not very big at all, and I really like the way the head turned out.  I'm trying a new style for the head and I think I'm going to keep it this way.  I didn't use a pattern for her, just made her up as I went. Her arms are also attached with safety eyes so they can move! Cheesy

She's so cute! I love her hair, and that's a really good idea to use the safety eyes for movable limbs!

So cute! I've been working on some brushed yarn things and was thinking of trying to use the left over fluff for stuffing plushies.
