hey look, a merman!

I’ve tried something new- a twist on my man pattern. I’ve been thinking about it for a long while now and finally got to figuring out the tweaks and sewing him up.

It is fun to go through my supplies- which toile would work for a sea creature? Which patterns and colors would make a good tail? And sea hair, what does that look like? What about trims?
