Customized Work

My fourth mermaid cocooon was a customized piece.  The order was for one in a dark purple that would fit a specific doll.  It took a little playing with the math, but I came up with proportions that I like.  It is finished and will go out in tomorrow's mail.

    1. Thanks! I'm not out to sell a lot, so that helps. I'm always mindful to not turn my "crafting" into work. I rely heavily on it for a creative outlet and stress release. I'm always terrified if I turn it into work I will lose that benefit.

  2. Gorgeous! These seem to be trending in children/adult sizes as well. I don't know how long one of these would take but I say I think yours is much better than the ones I have seen advertised! =)

    1. Thank you. It took me longer on this one than the others, but I was working on getting "just the right size." LOL

      I have toyed with making an adult one to see how much time it would take. The biggest thing is that when people look at something homemade, they tend to think of just the cost of the materials and not actually add up all the hours it takes to make something. I didn't charge anywhere near the "prescribed" formula for pricing homemade goods. However, I was after enough to kind of just pay for the next project so to speak.
