I wanted to sew a mermaid suit. I hung it over a really old oar, and hung it on the stairwell. I made my own pattern and then added lots of shells,pearls, some bling, and the scales on the front of the mermaid skirt I cut out one at a time, and sewed on one at a time..all 189 of them. I used some crinkly sheer fabric and gathered it tight to sew for the fin.I had a "coconut" bra that I had for years, it was a gag gift..so I covered it in fabric and shells and bling. I want it to look like some mermaid did her "wash" and hung it out to dry. I do have some other art things I want to hang up there with a mermaid theme.
