Yesterday's Project

My son's class is putting on a production of "The Little Mermaid" in May. I am a weekly classroom volunteer so lately I have been doing some set design and other tasks related to the play. This morning I made a mermaid tail.

The fabric base is cut from a green sheet and then there are four layers of a green plastic tulle-type stuff sewn to the fabric. I am auditioning embellishments too.

This is some lime green eyelash yarn pinned over the top. I like it! I haven't figured out all the details yet but this looks like a good start.

Yes, that does look like a good start! How fun! How big is it? Will it be fitting on one of the young girls? That's a lot of fun. I was thinking about some of that sort of see through but iridescent fabric they make. I can't think of what it's called. Interesting on there. Hey, you like to about sewing on about a million sequins? LOL. Just kidding! I think the eyelash yarn is a better idea!
