  1. I am making a crochet mermaid doll for a lady and I was wondering if it’s okay that I use the pattern for your mermaid purse for this because it is very close to what I need in order to make this doll for her I would enclose a picture but I don’t know how to do that feel free to contact me in my email let me know if it’s okay or not and I only Tio see if there’s a way that I could adjust the size and it if that’s okay also because I believe the doll is a 12in to 14in doll I’m not 100% certain she just showed me a picture and I’ve been searching all over the Internet for a doll that’s very similar to it thank you for your time and thank you for your patience and I will be waiting to hear from you

  2. My question is about how to join the body of the purse.. it’s really confusing to me… if I do it exactly as it says it doesn’t work out right… so I’m wondering if there’s a step
    I’m missing… maybe a slip stitch? I’m not so sure about all the chain 1s either… I really like this purse though! I’m planning to make a few for my nieces and my friends daughter!! Soo cute!!
