Sew each door onto the medium pieces 🙂

Since the last part is coming up next week I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start on a mermaid doll 🙂

Building your page:
Using the tails of each applique, whip-stitch each piece into place!
The Castle:

I sewed on 8 buttons onto the page itself – these are used to ‘button down’ the sandcastle 🙂
The DC stitches are used as ‘button-holes’ !

    Hi Roxanne 🙂 Yes it is the right doll! I will be giving the mermaid tail and her accessories separate!

  2. I couldn’t find a Mermaid Doll at the link you gave. It was a storybook doll for a doll house. Is this the right doll in that we will be using it as our mermaid? Will you give directions for a tail for her?

  3. I enjoy your Creative Workshop. This gives kids a chance to create and use their imagination.
    Your new site is great.
    Thanks
