Mermaid Tail Blankets

Huge trend this holiday season and I can see why. So warm and comfy and not to mention the creative twist to a blanket to snuggle yourself in. 20161223_013608

A few weeks before Christmas, a close friend of mine asked if I would be willing to make one for her daughter. I was thrilled to do it. I was just as excited to make it as i was to say yes. 20161218_184530

I decided to use the Soft N Comfy Dot Fabric to help add to the mermaid tail scale effect and I believe it fit perfectly. I made two large tails and smaller versions of the tail for their dolls would match and cuddle up with them.

 

I went to work, I drew up a pattern, measured, and measured again and then started to cut. I have never been a fan of stretchy fabric for  reasons that I hate cutting it and when sewing it is moves so much!. Personal hate I suppose, BUT I KNOW I AM NOT ALONE! 🙂 Pinning is very important but I felt that wonder clips worked better than pinning for me.

These were fun and easy to do! Let me know if you are interested!
