WEEK 8: Mermaid applique block #4
Today’s yet another mermaid! I loved drawing the extra details on this little girlie. Instead of the usual fish fin, I gave her a fin that’s more like a shark – and of course the braid is fun too 😀
It’s put together just like the first applique week: print the pattern, trace the outlines, fuse to the fabric, and cut the shapes. I would recommend fusing the cameo frame first (it needs to be shifted up a bit to accommodate the dangling ‘beads’), then fusing the dangly bits below afterwords, then the mermaid at last of course. Then as before, sew around the edges.

When you’re done, it should look something like this! Once again, give it a good press the remeasure the block to make sure it’s still 15½” square.
Next week we’re back to a simpler shape – the last sea creature! 😀
