A needle felted mermaid for the eldest girl. For some reason she always get the sensible gifts, like puzzles and books and craft kits, while the younger older girl gets the beautiful fairies, necklaces and purses. So as to make her feel equally girlie I made her this mermaid from some pipe cleaners and wool roving and felt. She was a little effort but worth it! I'm thinking of adding some needle felted items to my shop in the coming weeks. * Noting from this picture, that mermaids probably shouldn't have sailors arms!
