Starting my commission

This is a picture of a doll I have done before. It is a Patti Culea pattern from Soft Dolls and Animals May 2002 issue. I am making one like it for a lady's daughter. I really love this pattern. I cut out and sewed the flesh parts today and have to find out what color the lady wants the tail and fins and flukes. Batiks are my fabric of choice for this doll even though I love using the doe suede for most of my dolls. I will use my Jaquard dyes to dye the body and arms to match the fabric I choose for the rest of her. She will get embellished with lots of bead and fun fur yarn for hair.
