I sewed on 8 buttons onto the page itself – these are used to ‘button down’ the sandcastle ๐Ÿ™‚
The DC stitches are used as ‘button-holes’ !

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Hi Roxanne ๐Ÿ™‚ 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
