Mermaid costume pattern!

Here's a pattern for your very own American Girl doll-sized mermaid costume! This idea comes from my summer movie, which is all about mermaids (sneak peek below).




Print these photos out so that they fill a full piece of printer paper (that's the size I designed them for) and they should fit nicely on your dolls. 

Enjoy!

  7. My 9 yro and her friends LOVE your videos. Your amazing talent and effort really shine through in your videos. Can"t wait to see Mermaid Cove soon. American Girl should pay you to create videos on their web page. You have inspired my daughter to get her dolls out again and make her own videos. Keep up the great work!

The story behind it all....

In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.


It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
