My daughter started brainstorming Halloween costumes two weeks ago and told me she wanted to be a Mermaid. I was going to nix it because hey, it snows most Halloweens here in Vermont! But then I got to thinking that I could probably make a pretty easy Mermaid costume. In case you didn’t know, my motto is cheap and easy… guess I’m sort of a crafting bimbo! Anyway, not only did I think I could create a warm one, but one that didn’t restrict movement.After a little brainstorming and a quick mock-up of the tail I was ready to get to work on my DIY Mermaid Costume. Today I’ll share how I made the Mermaid tail.
Emerald Lame (I purchased 1.5 yards for my daughter who is a size 10/12 and I should have only purchased 1 yard)
1 Yard Batting (or however much of the Emerald Lame you get)
