Now Playing Tracks

Working on very late christmas presents for Keirani and her kids. I have two modes when it comes to crafting, burnt out and ALL OF TEH CRAFTING! Guess which mode I’m in now? Oh well, at least this means I’m catching up on all the series I watch.

She’s finally done! My mermaid is done! I’m very proud of her, mostly the tail because that was all done without a pattern. It’s not as flowy and crazy fancy as I wanted but I’m just glad it came out tail shaped.  I also like how one of the buttons is chipped making it look like she’s been through some stuff and kicked it’s butt. I’m going to head into michaels sometime and see about picking some stuff up to make her a trident. You can also thank Lady for me giving her the pointy ears, I was going to be lazy and not do it, but I do agree with her that it looks better with them.

And now it has the trunk of the tail. Also I’m tired of fighting tumblr to make this right side up. Time to start going crazy making fins and frills and other various fun tail things.

More progress shots of my mermaid doll. The top part is now done in the basic parts. The hair, eyes, and clothes and such will all be added on after the rest of the body is finished. Time to try and find a good tail pattern, and then get creative making the fins.

Progress shot of the doll I’m working on. Blank head, cause that’s not creepy or anything. The head, arms, and body will all be done in this yarn, but I have a different one for whatever I end up deciding to do for the tail. The lighting in my room also makes this look greener than it is, but not a whole lot.

Looking around for patterns for mermaid dolls, and what I’m seeing is a lot of really boring tails. Like half the fun of mermaids is you can go nuts with their tails and make them really crazy, I wish I was good enough to make my own weird patterns to make the kind of tail I want for my mermaid doll.
