Mermaid skirt

What ho,
Firstly i must apologise. I've seen this skirt on the interweb somewhere but can't remember where.
Anyway, I've made Tiny one as i found some fabric in the off cuts bin at the market (for £1) that i though would work well and look fishy!
 Its scooped up at the front and has a frill all the way round so she can feel like she has a mermaid tail!

I need to tighten the waist band for her so will get a better picture when she wears it properly.
 Not sure why ferret had to be in the picture but apparently he did!

a quiet week

what ho,
 I've been having a quiet week. I made loads of cake at the weekend as my lad was having a bake sale at school
apparently this went very very quickly!
I have been sewing but its just a pile of soakers for skate club. I've been trying to use up any bits of fabric that are anything like the right size. I may return to some of them and see if i can patch work some bits together, would make the more interesting both for me to make and for the new owners :)
