Little Mermaids


I have a craft fair coming up in May, and have realised that I need to make a few new things for my table.  Usually it is my little knits that sell best, and as this is not just a craft fair, but a family fun day, this will probably be the case again. So keeping with my seaside theme, I have been knitting these little creatures all week. 


Frankie would like the little mermaids to have bras, but I am insisting they are just baby mermaids, and so don't need clothes. Really it is because although I am dipping a toe into the pool of cuteness, I don't want to completely dive into Disnification.

I am thinking that I might make a few fairies, or just little dolls. Though they would also need clothes I guess. So watch this space! I can't quite decide whether to put the mermaid on ravelry as a pattern. It is such a little knit, but perhaps if there were a few other options, it would make a nice pattern. It is quite fun deciding on hair colours and styles.

 

A small selection of my fairies and mermaids are available to buy in my Etsy Shop.

  1. I'm definitely in seaside mood at the moment so your lovely mermaids are making me smile :)
    I think you are right not to dress them up and I'm sure they will be much appreciated at the craft fair.

  2. I love your mermaids - very cute. Definitely best as they are - you don't see many mermaids with clothes on do you? :0) Hope you have a good week.

  6. They are very cute - having different hair colours is great for buyers. Fairies would be very good too though! a small wand would be quick to make!

  19. Coupling the sea shells with the mermaids is absolutely perfect. How about little sailing boats or fish for the boys (and girls)? Love the seaside theme and your mermaids are beautiful.
