One of the last projects I finished up before our move was making 8 mermaid aprons.
It was for one of Miss J’s classmates. Her mom had this idea for a mermaid birthday party where the little girls wear mermaid aprons and then the boys be pirates.
She couldn’t find a mermaid skirt she liked and after looking at handmade ones online she decided she wanted it to be more of an apron so it would grow more with the girls and they wouldn’t trip while running around in it.
She made the pattern and bought the supplies. I just sewed them all up!
Isn’t that such a cute idea?
It did take me forever to clean up all the glitter from the sparkly tulle fabric that she picked out though.
We moved before the party happened, but she had me make one for Miss J as well.
Here is a picture of the pattern she created. The ribbon was sewn on in 5 places across the top and the tail was just two long pieces of tulle sewn on.
I had to trim the tulle once sewn on. All in all, it was an easy project, especially since I did it production line style 😉
