For the mermaid lover

I made this mermaid pencil case using denim & appliquing the mermaid on first using The same pattern as Dman's Pirate Quilt. And ofcourse I had to use the fish fabric for lining.

The birthday girl seemed impressed.

This arrived in the mail today from Bendigo Woolen Mills and I couldn't be more excited. I've been using Lion brand cotton yarn, which is nice but too thick for the project I'm about to start. I love that they sent me colour charts too with actual yarn samples. Big toothy grins all round.

Now to create...


  1. Oh it turned out great, she will love it!! Love Posie

  2. Love the mermaid - how cute:)She looks very pleased with it. ave fun with the cotton - what is it going to become - I love Bendigo Yarns

  3. That is wonderful! She looks really pleased.

  4. My little girl would go nuts for that! She quite fancies herself as a mermaid. Very well done and just look at that smile!!! x

  5. Oh I adore that mermaid zip case. So very brilliant. You are such a talent!
    ... and the pink cotton looks destined for greatness too!

  6. That is ADORABLE! I want to go back to school so I can have one.

    In pink, OBVIOUSLY.
