first day of mersday

This gorgues teal fin is my new project and i'm in love with it. I've already worn it in the pool (as you can see) about a hundred time's I love my new tail! swimming in it feels like your flying and I feel pretty hot in it to. lol

This is the first tail I have ever made and I wanted it to be pretty under the water as well as out of it. So when I cut the fluke (end) of the tail I cut it jagged so it would look like a fish, and the only fish I ever had growing up was a beta. hence the flowy beta style tail. It looks very much like a beta fish tail in the water to so i have achieved what I wanted. a beautiful teal beta fish tail. funny story about the fabrics. I went to pic out fabric that would look good as a mermaids tail (even thought I had no idea what color would) and I had origanaly wanted to make a yellow tail like a gold fish. so I could have a lilly pad bra. (in the making) but instead I found this gorgues teal and I LOVE teal so I had to get it. and come to find out it matched perfect to my swimsuit.
I thought it was funny I didn't plan to get matching fabric it just happened that way. It was fate!

Is there a mermaid in your pool?

hhhhhmmmm maybe you should check just in case.

happy fouth of july tomorrow
