A Home for the Mermaids

We got mini Barbie mermaids in the happy meals at McDonalds yesterday.  Paige was so excited.  On the way home I mentioned that I thought I had some fabric we could use to make a sea for the mermaids.  I shouldn't have mentioned it because of course to a 3 year old that means it has to be done immediately.  After lots of asking, I finally got around to it this morning after Brynne went down for her nap.  We used a bunch of leftover felt scraps and the "beach" is some leftover Warm and Natural batting.  Trying to come up with stuff that mermaids use is rather difficult.  When I first suggested that we make some "beach towels" that could also be pockets to store the mermaids in, I was informed that mermaids don't use beach towels.  I finally convinced her that they sometimes need them to dry their hair.  You can't really see it, but I sewed a ribbon on the back so that I can roll the whole thing up and tie it for storage and carrying around.  By the way, I have about had it with the rain!  I am smack in the middle of an outdoor spray painting project and the rain is really causing me problems.
