Swap: ~ Amigurumi ~ SENT

This swap required a crocheted item, stitched up in the amigurumi fashion. Amigurumi are basically dolls (and other creatures/animals) that are crocheted in single crochet and in a spiral.

I wanted to make a mermaid for my partner, but was not satisfied with any free patterns I found on the web. So I had to create my own.

Here she is, in all her glory!
Her hair is made from about 4 balls of eyelash yarn.

I had trouble with her fins, so I used a fin pattern from a well-known yarn company. (Link will be added later)

A close up of her head. That white thing is a shell

Here is a baby mermaid, again from a yarn company. (Link added later)
