Doll Size Mermaid Tail Blankets

Doll Size Mermaid TailsSo here are my 18″ Doll Size Mermaid Tails I created!  I was totally inspired by MJ’s Off the Hook Creations as I mentioned in another post! I LOVE how fast as easy these are to work up!  I’ve had some of crochet friends test the pattern for me and made a few changes and it’s ready!  So here is it FREE for all my “Hookin’ Friends” to enjoy! 18 inch Doll Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern  If you have any problems loading it from here please let me know.

These will fit an American Girl doll or any 18″ Doll plus I’m sure it will for sure fit those little blessings that decide they want to come into the world just a little sooner they are suppose to!

Don’t crochet and want to Order? Check out my Etsy Shop Link to the right. Order a matching one for your “Sweet Little Mermaid” how cute to have matching ones!  I’ve added many new sizes to my shop. I’ve got new colors coming too!

I’ll share more a little later along with a Doll version I created using the same pattern. Which is from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. It’s an AWESOME pattern which can be found on Ravelry.com. Also quick and FAST to make up.  Which is always nice! Well need to get my Xmas decorations put away so I’ll have the rest of the day to play!  Thanks for stopping by and come back a little later as I’ll be sharing more goodies and the Best Christmas Gift I got!

Happy Craftin’,

What’s been on my Hook

Hey all! So it’s been crazy busy over here. I’ve been getting ready for a Craft Fair I’ll be in very soon and time is just ticking away!  Plus I’m really looking forward to seeing my Daughter and Son-In-Law in a few weeks!!  Looking forward to that!

MermaidOn to what I’ve been working on –

SO I’ve been seeing all these GORGEOUS Mermaid Blankets in a variety of colors and finally I broke down and made one!

 

 

Mermaid 1
I absolutely LOVE how this came out!  So as you see mine is Black & Grey well I’m representing “Ursula” which most know is from the “Little Mermaid”.

I had a lot of this yarn and well that’s the first thing that popped into my head!  So right away I thought I’ve got to do the Evil Mermaid! LOL!

Extremely happy with how it turned out! Below in the next picture is the back of it.  So you see how to get into it! Talk about warm & cozy???

 

Mermaid 2What do you think?  I know I’m for sure going be making more!  In colors of course!  With the Holiday’s just around the  corner these would make GREAT gifts!  If you are interested I will take orders.   I’ll be adding to my Etsy Shop very soon!

If you are a crocheter looking for this pattern you can find it HERE!  It’s a great pattern and super easy to work up! Questions? Please comment here!

As always thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,

More Crocheted Little Mermaids

2nd Mermaid - 1So as promised here is the 2nd Mermaid Doll I made!  I really  like how she turned out too!  She’s absolutely perfect!

These are very addicting to make I do have to admit!

This is paid pattern which you can get HERE – It’s super detailed and has awesome pictures to follow.

A lot of hard work went into this pattern. It takes so much time to make sure written patterns come out right!   Below is a side view picture!

Crocheted Mermaid Dolls

Mermaid 4I’m back and ready to share my first Mermaid Doll I LOVE how she turned out!
For this one I used the following Pattern from Ravelry but I changed her Tail and I used this Pattern for that.  Oh and I added a belly button, not sure if you an see it that good! But I just had to try!
I also made up her Bra Top.  If you’d like to know how I did it please don’t hesitate to ask me!  IT was super easy!  These will be going into my Etsy Shop very soon.  I’ve got one more to show you which I’ll post tomorrow morning.  It is another great pattern and a super cute Mermaid!  So come back and check it out!  Thanks for stopping  by and as always….

Crocheted Baby Mermaid Cocoon

Hey Crafters!  Well first I hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July celebration for those who celebrated!  We spent it with Family & Friends and GREAT Food!  I’ll have to share of course my Spinach Dip recipe but also that cake that was there! It was Yummy!

Mermaid Cocoon 1Well on to my finally finished project – Yes as the title of this post said Baby Mermaid Cocoon which I had been dying to make!  I have to say I’m very pleased with how this turned out too!

I found a great video on YouTube which I’ll post the link below for those who maybe interested in making one! Don’t be intimidated it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. I had to change it up just a bit as I wanted my scales to lay just a little differently!

There are 3 videos 1 for the Body, 1 for the Bikini Top and the last for the Starfish headband! Click HERE for the Body part then you’ll see the rest.

 

Mermaid Cocoon 2Materials I used for this project were all Red Heart Yarn – Colors in Turqua, Pumpkin and a little bit of Aran.

I just LOVE the Starfish Headband & The Shell Bikini top!  This would make a great baby shower gift and a super CUTE Photo Prop of your “Little Mermaid”.

These will be in my Etsy shop soon as soon as I take just a little bit better pics! Just had to share before I call it a night!

Well that’s it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the Yummy Spinach Dip Recipe! As always thanks for stopping by and…….
