Recycled Bag Mermaid Tail

I just finished this recycled bag mermaid tail which is one component of the last outfit I am making for the upcoming Trashion Show. If you recieve my newsletter, you will know that I had a special request for this outfit, and I am so excited to make it happen.

Recycled Bag Mermaid Tail! Who knew you could make something so cool out of trash?!

I went to a local feed store, and asked if they had any trash for me to use. And they did!

They had these strange plastic woven bags (that frayed like crazy). I have no idea what they were used for, and honestly, I don’t think I want to know. I do know that I took them apart and made a mermaid tail with them.

I sewed it together, then painted it with acrylics.

Look at that space! Her palate expander is working already! You know, because Mermaids have those.

I am still working on the dress part, and will share it when I am done. But for now, I am super happy about making a pretty tail out of trash.

Tell me, what have YOU made today?
