I tried to sew some mermaid tails, but my Serger chose to be difficult. I had to figure something else out for this swap, and so I went with a Little Mermaid one hour basket (I used this free pattern). They're pretty handy to have around, and my little girl loves to put books in hers, which is why I made two.
I don't know, can I check this one off the 4QFAL list? I didn't make the tails, technically, there are mermaid tails ON them. I'll let the ladies in charge decide that one.
