I was inspired to make a fat mermaid pattern when reading a thread on the Regretsy forums.
Just backstitch the thing... or stem stitch, or whatever you prefer.

I'm a stay at home mother of three young children on the autism spectrum. One of my twin girls was born with a hypoplastic right heart. Life is always busy. I've been making things for as long as I can remember. Creativity can save some money, and considering the economy and never ending medical bills (even with insurance), that's important.
