Super soft cotton and silk blend. For tail I used a 5 DC shell pattern to look more like fish scales. Tiny top in dc pattern with a drawstring tie in the back. I made 2 little crocheted starfish for decor. I decided to knit a little stretchy headband but it could also be done in crochet stitches. I just love how it came out. She will be 13 days old tomorrow. …….she’s ready to play mermaid with Gramma!!
