Community pools are open, the water is getting warmer at the beach, and we’re ready to make a splash with this week’s free project. That’s right: even the puns around here are summer-themed now that it’s June!
To celebrate the warmer weather, we’re giving away Merry Mermaid from We Make Dolls two ways this week: You can comment for a chance to win the actual project from the book, or you can download a PDF of the project instructions and make it yourself!
Look familiar? Maybe it’s because this popular project comes from Danita Art. Those of you who visit her blog already know she dabbles in many mediums, including mixed-media and jewelry. You probably also know her for her vibrant use of color. If you haven’t already, stop by Danita’s blog or see her colorful cast of characters in her Etsy shop.
To enter for a chance to win the one and only Merry Mermaid, sewn and stuffed as you see here, please leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, June 15. Monday, June 25. Any comment is fine—though we’d love to hear what you’re planning to make first this summer. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Monday, June 18 Wednesday, June 27. Tina W. is the winner!
