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.
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.
My little mermaid with her broken finger modeled it for me.
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?
