Description

My 4 year old granddaughter called me the other day to let me know that her Barbie was in need of a pink mermaid tail for swimming in their pool.  I had made my granddaughter and her sister pink swimsuits earlier this spring, and have a lot of leftover fabric. 

This afternoon I cut out and sewed up the tail.  It is basically a tube with a tail shape on the end.  It slides up over Barbie's feet and Barbie, being Barbie, has plenty of anatomy in which to keep the tube from having a wardrobe malfunction at the pool.

This is a 15 minute project.  I put it in the post when I was done and in a few days I expect I will get a call, and probably a photo of Barbie wearing her tail emailed to me.

Thank you. It seems to be a big hit on other places I've shared this online. I think a lot of grown women are nostalgic for their own childhood "Barbe" days!
