Have you seen how much fun the Love of Legends tour has been so far?? If not, you need to hop over to Phat Quarters – our cohosts have done a fantastic job of collecting the posts every day!
Naturally, given such an awesome theme, I couldn’t help but sew along. I’ve been having so much fun introducing my boys to the more “girly” legends like mermaids (and we’re starting a fairy garden next week!), so I knew I wanted to do a merMAN look for Tim.
For the front of the hoodie, I appliqued a trident in silver. I know it looks a little more like a fork than anything, but hey, even a merman needs to eat, right? Let’s just roll with that and continue….
Naturally the back is my favorite! I have loved mermaids for years, and I just love how this tail turned out! It’s a totally free-hand applique and worked out better than I had hoped, since I was putting stretch performance fabric onto terry cloth.
Both patterns go together so quick and so well. I already have a matching set cut out for John, although I may go with something else on the back so they can tell them apart easily. I’m thinking something octopus-ish.
If you haven’t entered the giveaway, be sure to do so below and if you have anything that fits this theme, you NEED to link up!! The prizes are pretty cool!
