Mermaids are a beautiful metaphor for staying afloat, no matter how hard the waves may crash upon the rocks.
This video tutorial shows how I took the idea of Yarn Baby (Tassle) dolls and created Mermaids with a little bit of yarn, a whole lot of love and a little bit of head scratching.
Oh, yes, also a few sneezes are included with love from our aged rescued Chihuahua mystery mix dear old dog who seems to respond to the making of video by coming into the studio and sneezing loudly whenever the video camera is turned on. Why? Who knows?
Anyhow, I hope that you will enjoy making Yarn Dolly Mermaids!
Here’s the video tutorial:
One of the members of the Peg Loom weaving group on facebook just asked what people were weaving on their Peg looms, and my response was ‘Mermaids!’- which is a very normal response for me.
In fact, recently, a friend introduced me to her sister’s kids, saying- This is Noreen- she makes mermaids. Indeed I do!
I love to weave mermaids and to carve them in wood.
Here’s a video of a ‘swoop’ (I just made that up as a way of describing a group of mermaids) of new mermaids that I have woven up using a pattern that I designed for my etsy shop.
Here’s the link: to the pattern: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/91030975/pdf-pattern-for-mermaid-woven-on-the?ref=shop_home_active_1

A few years ago, I made a little video showing a different ‘Swoop’ of Mermaids. Here’s the link to that video:
