End of Summer

I recently made a mermaid to mark the end of summer.

Marina and Starla

Marina is made of various cotton fabrics which are pieced together crazy quilt fashion. 
She has a mother of pearl fringe belt, gold and red beads sewn on the fabric below.

Her tail is sewn with sequins and pearls

The baby starfish is made of hand dyed silk habotai with clusters of micro beads

Marina and Starla's faces are colored with prisma pencils and pastels.
