A Primitive Mermaid in Shades of Lavender & Grey


Meet lovely Marilla. She’s a little over 13 inches from head to tail. She’s been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom, a couple of times, giving her such a lovely, aged patina. Marilla has been sealed with matte sealer so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has an embroidery thread loop sewn to her back making her suitable for hanging.

Marilla’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves.

Marilla’s tail has been painted in lovely, muted shades of lavender & grey. 


Marilla’s hair is 100% honey blonde mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. It has been ‘parted’ & pulled loosely to the sides.

Marilla is available on eBay. She will end, Sunday, June 14th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to have this little girl swim your way!
