Shown below are larger mermaids, also my own design.These mermaids are over 24" tall and feature a flexible tail. Available in an assortment of colors and patterns and fancifully adorned with satin ribbon, faux jewels and lace.  $75-$125 each.

Pinafores and petticoats, layers of ruffles and lace and everything nice, 

that's what my little girls (and boys), are made of... 

"When I was just a little girl of 4 or 5, my Auntie Celia began teaching me needlework. I learned to crochet and knit, to embroider and do fine hand work. Like many little girls, I also loved dolls and it 
wasn't long before I used my blossoming sewing skills to design dresses for them. Later, I worked in the collectibles industry.  More dolls, and my small collection of craft show purchases, little out of the way shop finds and the occasional gift from a traveling friend, expanded." 

"Eventually, I combined my love of dolls with my artistic and sewing skills, to create my own soft-body dolls. The very first doll I made was an angel doll.  I named her Faith, hoping that she would be the start of something wonderful." 
 

                               

                               "Faith was very plain compared to the dolls I make today.  When completed,                                        I took  her into the office to show  co-workers  who quickly critiqued her;                                           voicing  comments and suggestions as they inspected my creation.                                                     'She  needs socks and shoes.'  'Where is her petticoat?' 'More lace and                                                 ribbons would be nice.'  I tried my  best  to please everyone, and my dolls                                           improved from the effort. Thank you one and all."  

 

"Each of my dolls is a unique, hand-crafted original. They are available in cream, honey, chocolate, blossom or cotton muslin bodies, with a wide variety of hair and eye colors. The jointed, cloth bodies are stuffed with non-allergenic fiber fill. They have yarn or rag hair, button eyes, and a small button heart. All clothing is hand-made of quality materials however, because these are artist dolls, their clothing is not removable. Also, due to their hand-made quality, they will have small imperfections."

"Although I love creating my little girls and boys and angel dolls, I always envisioned making a mermaid.  There seems to be so few of them around.  Revising my doll body pattern, I designed a tail to replace the doll legs and purchased some colorful material and trims. Mermaids after all, have to be sparkly. As I was working one day, a friend picked up the 'tail' lying on my work table and began to wiggle it back and forth; asking why my mermaid did not have a 'flexible' tail. Thus improvements are made to new ideas."
