The Mermaid One
After finishing the last bag , The Anne Bonny one ( Pirate Princess)
I thought I’d stick with a sea theme. I just HAD to make a mermaid bag. I’m just a little bit transfixed with mermaids. I have no idea why I’m still so in love with the mythology of mermaids , even at the ripe age of soon to be 48. I really should be growing up by now, but no, I hold up my hands in confession and proudly proclaim:I love mermaids.
So here it is:
This bag measures 6 inches square , is fully lined with fresh lime green cotton and is made from a combination of mohair and acrylic yarns.
Much attention is paid to detail in this bag, making it a piece of wearable art . The mermaid has long flowing blonde hair, sparkling blue eyes and holds a starfish while she swishes her fishy tail amongst the seaweed.
The rim of the bag is adorned with pearl beads in shades of blue and green. The Angel fish has a googly eye and silver thread fins. She blows sparkly bubbles.
To complete the marine theme, seaweed sprouts from the handles in two shades of yellowy green.
This bag costs just £15 plus p+p , which considering that each bag is an original piece of crochet art, represents fantastic value for money. This would make a perfect original gift for that special little girl.
Available on my facebook page ( just leave a note next to the relevant photo and I’ll get back to you) with payment via Paypal.
Or you can visit my folksy shop once I upload it.
I wonder what I’ll make next? Does anyone have any suggestions?
