The Mermaids are Coming!


So this is the mermaid plan. I am supposed to crank out two fabulous mermaid fins that the girls will be able to walk in. I know this design works because I did this when the girls were in kindergarten and they were functional walking fins. The facing idea is kind of weird but when it gets stuffed with 1" wide upholstery foam, they come to life with 3D movement. Do I have the energy for this? Probably not. But my pride and ego get the best of me and there's nothing better than a little pressure of a Halloween deadline. Of course I will get them done. The girls need fins!!!!!!! How dare this happen during Socktoberfest.

Evil Twin indeed... although I think I am the evil twin...

Better thee than me on those fins though. D wants to be a faerie. Easy peasy. I say that now, but next year, she'll want the fins.
