Tutorial – Sea Glass Mermaid

Download the free pattern at Craftsy

I’ve been itching to post this tutorial since I finished it over the weekend! This was a fun tutorial I did for Therm-o-web demonstrating my favorite glue stick to use for ticker tape applique. My hairstylist is a huge mermaid fan and after seeing her for years I decided it was time to make something special in a mermaid theme. I hope you enjoy it!

    This is the OTHER Ellen from Tampa MQG. This is a beautiful project! You can tell by the smile on the recipients face!!
    I have linked to your blog and your YouTube video on McTavishing. I was inspired by the quilting on your Hopscotch Lane quilt. I started small on a pillow cover.
