Summer Fun Series - Under the Sea

I've been taking it easy this summer and sewing up a lot of the fun things. This time its all about rag dolls with a fun summer theme. Great for JubeJube and Amelia to play make believe on those rainy days and the  project isn't too  involved that it takes so long to finish off. 

I have no merit here I have to admit, its all Heidi & Finn and the Under the Sea rag doll mermaid pattern. And you can also find in the Heidi & Finn Etsy shop the dress up wardrobe patterns for the dolls. 

To start off, it was a lot of fun to have the girls select fabric from the bin of left overs. Most of the pattern pieces are fat quarter friendly so these dolls are great scrap buster projects. Then it was about selecting the hair styles and clothes to put on the dolls. 

They did have to be a little patient while I sewed the dolls up, but after that it was all about who would use the mermaid first. So glad they agreed they needed to share! 

There are a few other mini pal sets available through the Heidi & Finn Etsy shop, all of them equally as adorable. And there are also dress up sets to be able to mix and match outfits. Last but not least (something on my to-do list) there's also this cute little carry all bag for a doll and clothes. 

Now that JubeJube has an interest in sewing she could actually get one of the outfits sewn up with a little bit of help. These patterns are great beginner friendly projects. 

Now time to go check out the other projects in the series! Enjoy your summer!
