Little Fairy bags for Girls: The range continues

The Mermaid One


After finishing the last bag , The Anne Bonny one ( Pirate Princess)

Isn’t it adorable?

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:

So pretty , what little girl wouldn’t want to own this?

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?

  2. I love that you keep your spirit vibrant with even fantastical images of mermaids and such! You are as young as you feel! I’m taking notes. 🙂 It’s too bad you’re in the UK. I’d scoop up two of those for my little ladies.
