Hi!
So really this is a project I did in college but I like it so I'm posting it here :3 (not to say I don't like my other projects, this one just seemed appropriate)

We had a week for the project and were sent out to buy something from a charity shop and make something else out of it! Simple!
I found a strange childs dress/long top sort of thing with a weird sparkly blue fabric and an old ladys huuuuge sequined top Cheesy
For some reason they reminded me of a mermaid so I made a bag...in the shape of a mermaids tail! We could only use the materials we had though, not like buy anything new so I couldn't add a zip (which is highly annoying because you can't close it), I might still do that later now it's been assessed ^^

I'm afraid I can't find any pics of the clothes before except for this one were I had already taken it apart


Anyways here's the bag (please excuse the messy room and me xD)
