Penelope the Mermaid
if anyone would like the pattern I could make one in pdf just let me know
cut out all your pieces out, I sewed the fins on to the body, and cut the face and hair out of felt
I hand stitched the face and hair on to the front of the dolly, you could always use a sewing machine to do this as well
hand paint her face with fabric paint.
now you take your piece pin right side together and sew around leaving an opening to flip right side out
flip stuff your dolly sew up the opening and your done easy peasy. You can tell in this picture the end of her hair I cut little slits in it so it fringes out. Chloe loved it she opened it today.
