If you didn't see my Mermaid Tail post, I made a mermaid tail/skirt for J's dress up collection. Well, this project was her idea, she saw the scrap fabric left over from the mermaid skirt and wanted me to make mermaid tails for the dolls. I just traced the doll's lower half, waist to toes, onto paper and then drew a mermaid tail around that adding almost an inch on both sides to the width. I cut out two identical pieces of fabric using my "pattern", sewed them together, leaving a slit in the back and sewing on a little piece of velcro for taking it on and off. I am loving these little pieces for using up scraps, making play things and they are fun because I'm not worried if they look perfect or if they turn out at all, so it's fun to just wing it!
Here is the original Mermaid Tail
And Here is the doll mermaid tail from scraps a year later....
