O Fallon, Missou...
Mermaid beauties! I created this pattern from some mermaid pics my daughter sent me. The tops are purple or blue shimmer fabric and the tail parts are a lacy metalic fabric with a green satin underneath. I lined them with the legs of my husband’s old flannel sweat pants and for my older grandaughter’ a piece of quilt batting I had, for added warmth. The flowers and leaves are handsewn and then rhinestoned. I added ropes of seed beeds, odds and ends of trim I have collected over the years and shells from various beach trips. The tails are yards of tulle I cut and stretched to give a fish tail look. For the straps I hand sewed fabric leaves to look like seaweed. Head pieces are headbands sewn and hotglued with various beads and trims
beads, shells, tulle, satin, lace, flannel silk flowers and leaves
