Coral, Queen of the Sea [A Finish]

So in my last post, you will have read about how I found a Little Red Riding Hood doll panel, but by the time I cam e to stitch it, I had two daughters who needed dollies. I went on a hunt online and found a mermaid doll - perfect for Mia. And it turned out that the panel was in stock at the fabric shop just a few minutes drive from where my dad use to work. I rang the shop, and they put one aside for me. I warned them it was my Dad coming in to pick it up. He's a good-un so he popped in on his way home from work one night and the ladies in the shop immediately knew who he was!

 It still took a few months for me to get round to making her. The pressure of a million things to do before we went on holiday seemed the perfect time to add this to the mix - wouldn't it be great for the girls to have new dollies when we go camping. Thank goodness she only took a few hours one evening to make up.

Mia loved her in her little suitcase, and she certainly helped entertain the kids in the tent!

This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here.
