Who doesn't love a mermaid? You'll love making this one with the clearest, easiest Waldorf doll instructions you'll find anywhere.
This design stitches up quickly as a simple doll for very young children. For an older child, have fun with novelty yarn hair or other embellishments.
The ponytail hair style combines the long, flowing hair that children love, with ultra-easy, no-crochet construction. Instructions for a clever and low-cost (or no-cost!) adjustable hair loom are also included.
Tutorial-style pattern is lavishly illustrated with large color photos, showing you all the step-by-step details.
Pattern includes stitching guides for 3 tail fin variations.
