Drum roll please! Here it is - my very first pattern!!!! Introducing 'Marina the Mermaid'. She was inspired by my 6 year old daughter - who loves mermaids. Marina is approx. 15" tall (or 38cm) and has been designed to be a child's toy - to by played with and cuddled. Her clothes, top & skirt, are completely reversible and are fastened with thin strips of Velcro - making it easy for a child to take them on and off. She is wearing a little starfish necklace and her hair is made from wool with highlights throughout. I hope you like her! The pattern will be available next week from Cookies & Cream Craft and also from my local patchwork shop Riviera Patchwork. A very big Thank you to Sandy, from Cookies& Cream Craft for testing the pattern for me and giving me valuable feedback and encouragement. Sandy is also running a give-away on her blog with this pattern as the prize, so please pop on over HERE and enter for the chance to win! Also a very big Thank you to my husband and kids for supporting, encouraging me and putting up with me during the designing & pattern writing stages and helping me get this all off the ground!
