A fishy tail. . .

Last week, just before I came down with the lurgy, I purchased some 'sparkly pink and silver' fabric.

Yesterday, whilst looking after my sick little boy, I decided to sew.
(My son was only just 'unfit' for school,  happy watching TV and playing with Lego)

It's a fishy project for my two little nieces.

The idea is to make two 'sleeping bag' sort of things, for sofa sitting, story reading, film watching, etc

Number one took lots of puzzling, head scratching.
But all was worth it (just wish I'd made one my size)

So the final fishy tails. . . . . . 

Lovely fleece lined mermaid tails.

You can imagine the scene, my two beautiful blonde nieces, sitting on the sofa watching The Little Mermaid, sitting in there mermaid tails. . . . . . . The  trouble is I know them. The smaller of the two won't sit still and has an aversion to being 'dressed up'. The older of the two will probably say 'Mermaids don't have pink tails, you know?'


  1. They are amazing, perfect for TV watching.

    1. Let's hope so, you know how fickle small children can be!! Sarah

  2. They look wonderful, well done.

    1. They look lovely but that fabric is no fun to sew. The sewing machine went through a few needles! Sarah
