Here are some mermaid moments... in fabric. Independent fabric stores draw me like a moon captured by gravity. They carry talented designers that cannot be found in chain stores. The quality tends to be better as well.
Mermaid doll I sewed using a free pattern from Wee Wonderfuls. The girls got these as a small gift in the advent calendar last year (only 7" long).
Japanese fabric is a weakness of mine. Kokka is some of the best but hard to come by in these parts. I have no idea what to make with it yet but I know I will love it. Hand crocheted octopus from my soul sister in Turkey... who is moving to Japan soon! Hmmm.... Kokka???
A quilt I made using some of my favorite fabric of all time, Heather Ross's Mendocino Mermaids. I bought this line in two colorways; this fall themed one in orange and browns, as well as a bright pink fushia one seen further below.
This is my colorful hippie bag. The pattern came out of Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me book. Highly recommend this book, tons of great projects.
Check out your local independent fabric store... you are sure to find some treasures.
