Have a dolly in your life that needs a mermaid tail?
Anne is a big fan of the Disney Princess dolls and decided Ariel really need a tail. Since she needed one pretty much right then (some important under the sea business to attend to) Anne had to settle for blue :)
To whip up a tail for your dolly you'll need fabric with 4 way stretch (I used swim fabric) and a small scrap of high-loft batting.
And your free pattern which you can get below. The images are 8.5 x 11" and should fill the whole page when printed. This fits an 15" doll but you could pretty easily enlarge it to fit 18" dolls as well.
1. Sew your pieces together with right sides together with a piece of batting in the tail section
2. Turn right side out, add a casing with elastic, and you're done!
