Mermaid, part 1

This is giving me nightmares.
See, it looks innocuous enough.  Just a nice pattern.  Various sizes.  I even got it at 40% off. 
Friends, I'm scared.

I have promised a certain precious 3-year old that I will defeat this giant by Halloween.  I think it's going to be a series at the Wendy City.  Anyone want to join in?  

So I bought it.  And I read it.  Carefully.  
I'm confused already.  
And now I'm contemplating fabric.  I don't even think I understand how much fabric to buy.
Stay tuned....


  1. LOL - my 4-yr-old has been asking if she can grow a tail to be a mermaid :-)

  2. I picked up the same pattern at Joann's and asked the fabric cutting gal if it was too hard for a beginner. She bluntly told me to put it back, and I obeyed. So, I think I'm going to fashion some kind of dress and attach felt "fins" to both sides at the bottom. Then, I'm going to glam-up those fins with the trusty glue-gun. I'll keep you posted!

  3. probably not the best pattern for a beginner, but it is easier than it looks. Pattern instructions are written to be confusing. Give a holler if you get stuck! :)

  4. I am glad someone as fabulous as you still gets confused. It gives me hope. :)
