OOAK Green Eyed Handcrafted Felt Keepsake Mermaid Plush Doll
This mermaid is Marina and the choices I made with her fabric gave her the most unusual tail out of all my mermaids. She was carefully designed to be a unique and special handcrafted doll. She is 1 of 3 mermaids available in this current series.
- She is an OOAK design and is made from a quality, soft premium felt and wool blend felt. She is stuffed firmly with clean, new 100% premium polyester fiberfill. Her arms are jointed so that they can move up and down.
- Marina is machine sewn of a light flesh-tone premium felt and has a hand embroidered and appliqued face with sea green eyes and a pink mouth. Her pretty green and pink tail is also machine sewn of a lovely pink knit netting fabric over premium bright green felt. Her body and tail are hand sewn together.
- She wears a sweet tube bra of the same fabric as her tail and has been hand sewn to her body. Her hair is sewn firmly on her head by hand and is a multi-color combination of light pink and white, green and brown yarn. Her hair is worn down and free. She also wears a small skirt made of coordinating pink satin taffeta with a bright green felt waistband and a dark pink flower button sewn on the front.
- She measures about 17 inches tall from tip of tail to the top of her head.
My love of mermaids came from a book by the much loved Hans Christian Anderson. His story gave me a lifelong love of these mythical creatures.
Because she is machine sewn this mermaid is suitable for gentle play for an older child but not a baby or toddler because of the button detail which could be a choking hazard and how the arms are attached. She would make a sweet nursery decoration or art doll for a collector and would look great hanging on a wall. I can sew a loop on her back so she can be hung, if requested.
She can be spot cleaned if necessary.
