Mermaid Tails!

Well, today is an exciting day! The Mermaid tail pattern by Made for Mermaids is being featured at and I couldn't be happier. Megan, designer and fashion guru at Made for Mermaids allowed me to use her mermaid blanket pattern for a fun tutorial that includes a lined blanket, perfect for those times when you want to use quilting cotton (check out  Michael Miller's fairy frost!)

The tutorial for a lined blanket is featured in's website HERE 

For the original tutorial, go to Made for Mermaids website HERE

For The Made for Mermaids pattern group on Facebook, follow the link HERE, the group is full of information, support, contests and freebies for all Made for Mermaids fans!

And, if you need a video tutorial on how to create the original blanket, Megan has created a video just for you! 

This is a really fun project, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Many thanks to Megan for allowing me (and to share her pattern and also for taking fabulous photos of my girl and hers together, they are the cutest little mermaids!

My Sewing Room

So, this is where it all happens! I finally decided to quick my children out of the game room we have on the second floor and took it over with all my sewing treasures, I never realized how much stuff I had until it finally happened. I am beyond pleased with having a dedicated space, hardwood floors make it so much easier to clean up after I'm finished and all the light I get during the day is just lovely. The only downside is that it gets hot, I mean, I call my sewing area the sweat shop during the Texas summer for a reason, but the ceiling fan sure helps. So here is my photo overload because I am really super happy with the space. Enjoy!


Some Target cubbies were perfect for some of my fabric.

Love my sewing tables, they are not only perfect but have enough room to store fabric and notions.

Notions and Trims, in clear glass containers because I like to see them all!...and to help the environment of course!

And my first pastel painting to add a personal touch!
