AKA "How I keep out of trouble"

I've been wanting to make this for a while, but finally got some motivation because I've got space at an art show April 5th.

All the fabric (except the backing) is scraps I brought home from work (free!). The backing is actually a batik in shades of blue, not purple like it looks in the picture. The mermaid is fused and hand-stitched, everything else is machine sewn. It turned out to be about 36" square.

Finished


Finished close up (with backing- but the backing is more blue less purple)


Before finishing


ETA: I forgot to put the size.
