Woo hoo! I get to post first!

Thank you Sharalee for the most amazing mermaid dotee!! She is quite lovely and I'm honored to start my dotee collection with her.  Sharalee also sent some super cute extras (I die for the green flowered ribbon!!) and a fabulous hand drawn dotee card!! I am a beginner dotee maker so I hope mine is ok  Undecided I threw my back out last weekend so she is a miracle that was made as I was laid up resting Wink

Anyway, here is my lovely mermaid (oh! and thank you for labeling her on the back!! What a great idea!!) My awful camera does her no justice...

I agree with Wulf.  It's fun to look again and find new details.

dulcet chose my starfish request and did a different take on the phrase and I am tickled pink with the results!!


The face is adorable, very gentle looking. The hundreds of scales are mesmerizing and stunning!!!



The tail fins are some sort of ribbony substance that if I had in my own stash, I would NEVER give up!!  I love it!


back shows all the wonderful turquoise color and a silver shell thingie that for some reason is totally off color in this pic.  Sweet dangle at bottom with real shell.

thank you so much, dulcet. she is awesome!!!!

Glad you liked it!  The tail fins are made from a scrap from a dress my Grandma made my Mom (which I have and it's amazing).  I thought it would work perfectly.

I do not usually get swap anxiety, but the dotees in the gallery are making me feel a little anxious about what I sent. They are so wonderful! Great job everyone.

Love all of the embellishments on the mermaid!  Just lovely!

The starfish is clever and beautiful!  Dulcet, your dotees have become some of my favorites!  Love all the careful details...and what a cool thing for you to have some fabric from your grandma!  A family tradition of crafting passed down!  Kiss

Both mermaid dotees are really fabulous. Sheralee, I especially like all the fun embelishments including the embroidery, and Dulcet, I really enjoy the sequins. Did you hand embroider them on or were they pre-added onto some fabric?
