I made my girls mermaid felt dolls this summer. We found the cutest book, My Felt Doll by Shelley Down of Gingermelon, and had to make them! Since the dolls are entirely hand out of wool felt, they take a little extra time, but the end results were so cute!
I ordered all my felt from Benzie Design, a shop specializing in wool felt and notions. I let each girl choose all the colors for her doll, so they turned out very unique and different.
Lydia named her doll Crystal and chose cool, softer colors.
With some pink, of course.
And Norah named her doll Coral and chose brighter, worker colors.
I especially love the bit of pink on the front of the hair.
Over all, I love the projects and hope to make a couple more dolls from the book. I hope my girls enjoy them for years to come!
