Mermaid Dolls!

Collector Mermaid Dolls by Brenda J. Ellis, Painted Mermaid Designs. 

I started designing a mermaid doll for my youngest granddaughter and enjoyed creating the doll so much I have been inspired to continue my collection! I hand-dye the wool to hook the dolls with in #2,3 & 4 cuts.

The back of the dolls have  dyed sheep curls hooked in the back of head for hair and a hooked neck and shoulders. I use the solid piece of dyed wool for the back of tail outfit to show the dyed design. All dolls are hand sewn, some whipped with yarn for added decorative effect. The jewelry is

crafted by myself for the dolls adornments!

Some of the mermaid dolls will have additional clothing accessories such as knitted or crocheted shawls, poncho's or hats,  made by Laurie Proctor of Maine. To order a mermaid doll send me an e-mail at
