Well finally the mermaids are done. My back is still a bit twingy but better. Before my back issues I was creating full force but now have slacked off to almost nothing. I had to really push to get the mermaids done. They are completely different than I originally imagined them. I think I like them but mostly am relieved that they are done.
Just quick shots in my studio. Each is similar but different. I usually sew on all the details before stuffing the piece but since these were originally prototypes I had to do the details after.
Each has a seahorse that has been beaded on the large part of the tail.
All the felt details have been beaded also. I'm loving czech glass beads right now. You can't see the details well but they really are much nicer in person.
They can be posed many different ways.
My favorite is the blue one. I think she's the prettier one. Once I get better photos these two will be available in my shop. Well I'm off to push myself to work on the witches that have been standing around waiting for me.
