I also made her something for her to-be baby girl. Disney’s The Little Mermaid is basically to Crystal what Beauty and the Beast is to me, so I really wanted to make her something with Ariel on it. This is my first time doing applique embroidery with my machine, it was really fun and wasn’t hard! The embroidery file is from heathersue and the rainbow piping, pique and the pattern (“Melody’s Mermaid Sunsuit”) are from KariMeAway. I got the rainbow bubbles fabric from Joann’s. The body of the playsuit is made with cotton bird’s eye pique. I added a little more rickrack to the straps later, but please note the rickrack on the ruffle-butt, too! The pattern was simple to use, it’s almost all one piece (plus the straps and ruffles) making construction a breeze.
