The Little Mermaids

Our little fish have evolved into mermaids.  Hailey is positive she is part mermaid.  She can hold her breath for over a minute and swims so gracefully she could be one.  Lately she has even been beating Max when they race.
 The girls love playing mermaids and transformed their tights into "tails."  Problem was that the tights soon tore.  There was only one thing to do.  Make tails!
 We went to Jo Ann's and they each picked out their swim fabric.  I traced them with their swim flippers on and cut out the tail.  After sewing them together I attempted to make tops to match.  Lets just say its a good things we didn't have any company over.  Hailey tried valiantly to keep it on, but it just kept slipping so she soon had to switch to a real bathing suit top.  Karlie was oblivious and just kept swimming.  LOL I worked on the tails all week and they were SO excited to play with them that they slept in braids the night before so they could have "mermaid hair."
 A rare glimpse of the elusive mermaids out of water.  I was sure Peter Pan would fly down at any moment!
A fun project that they have used every time we swim!

Darn, were you serious about me sending you the mermaid pattern? I am so sorry. Yours turned out great. And I love that they can swim in them. They can be like Ariel and turn human when they fall off. ;o) You are such a fun mommy!! Love that they had "mermaid" hair. Great picture!!!

OK you are waaay more ambitious and FUN than I am! I would have thrown in the towel before I even got started. ;) They look fabulous and your mermaids are stunning. I hope they aren't inviting any mer-mans over. LOL.
Looks like you have halloween costumes taken care of too!
