I made this mermaid doll for my niece for Christmas and never got around to posting it. I adapted several patterns I had to make it. As with most of my projects, once I finished it, I had so many ideas on how I would make an even better one. So I did! The second doll is much more flamboyant and is going to be entered in the OC Fair this year in the crochet dolls, toys, and animals category. I will be making a follow up post for the fair after this one as it isn’t my only entry this year. I’m hoping to win again, but I don’t know that anything can compare with the Octopus from 2018. At any rate, if you want to see what I’m working on prior to it becoming a blog post, please follow me on instagram. I use my account for crafts only.
