Mermaid Rag Doll!!!

Hello my friends! Hope you had a wonderful week. Today I have a handmade mermaid rag doll to share with you. My daughter wanted me to make her a mermaid rag doll. Here is the one I created for her. This is my first ever rag doll  that I sewn together with my sewing machine. :)  Not bad for my first rag doll. This rag doll is 11 inches tall.
I used muslin white fabric for upper body of rag doll and dark green cotton fabric for mermaid tail. The bra is a small piece of felt .I sewed ribbon on bra so it could be tied on  rag doll back. The rag doll hair was created with red yarn. I tied black ribbon in hair to create pony tails. To create rag doll  eyes, nose and mouth I used black and red embroidery floss. Here is a close up of  the hand sewn embroider face.
Here is a close up of  mermaid tail.The rag doll pattern was hand drawn by me. There's all kinds of free rag doll pattern on the web. My daughter like her handmade rag doll and I do too. :) Come on over to Monday Handmade Linkup Party and linkup anything handmade including recipes.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful and fun weekend! :) Linking up to all the linkup parties here.
