Mermaid Sugar Queens

Here are some of my newest creations. They are art dolls based on the Dottie dolls found on other websites. I needle felted the faces and used pieces from a vintage 1930's quilt block for the bodies. I then added silk ribbons and bead work. I call these Mermaid Sugar Queens, because they are just plain sugary sweet with their salty sea fishy shaped bodies and their luscious silk candy ribbon tails
From top to bottom:
Tango Mermaid Queen
Blue Moon Dancer Mermaid Queen
Spanish Rose Flamenco Mermaid Queen

Aren't these too delcious for words?
