So, I whipped up a super cute mermaid costume for my ex-wife in-law's (long story short I married and divorced her first husband and now cohabitate with her older brother and still have a wonderful relationship with my former stepdaughter - if I am not on Jerry Springer one day it will be a miracle) new baby.

It is based roughly on a purchased pattern (pretty much the shell top is the only part I followed), the mermaid princess cuddle critter cape set from Calleigh's Clips & Creations and stitched with a random assortment of yarns.

The tail:

The tiara:

The top:

This was my first attempt at crocodile stitch and I didn't quite get it from the pattern so I did some research and found an explanation that made more sense to me and winged it from there.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Every time i see a crocheted mermaid costume, i want to make one. Yours is the prettiest I've seen. I love, love the colors you used.
