"Ariel, listen to me. A human world is a mess..." and by now you probably have a tropical melody of Under the Sea stuck in your head. That is if you were obsessed with little mermaid like yours truly here. It's no wonder I couldn't resist this awesome little DIY that I did based on ABM's project (they have a tutorial with patterns on their blog ready to download HERE) and I immediately knew I had to recreate it and add my own spin on it...
And I mean IMMEDIATELY! I looked around the house to find some materials but I knew I didn't have any skin toned or glitter fabric let along some cool buttons or even fabric glue. My scissors were broken and my sewing kit looked all messed up. It felt discouraging and I almost gave up. Instead, I looked harder.
But you know what happened then? The acrylic paint dried and turned into a thick layer of plastic and it made super difficult to do any hand sawing. I did it anyway. After a while I was half done and it honestly looked horrible. I kept thinking that all this work was for nothing and that it just wasn't worth it. I was once again ready to give up. But I didn't! I kept going.
|Oh my, what a mess...|
And that's how this little mermaid thought me not to give it up even if everything is going seems to be going against me. Dramatically speaking.. And when I look at her now I know - it was totally worth it! ｡◕ ‿ ◕｡
