FO - Ariel Seashells

My daughter is obsessed with Ariel and the Little Mermaid. A friend is sewing her a green mermaid tail, and I found this great pattern for scallop shells from a 1983 pamphlet called "Crochet by the Sea" by Annie's Attic.

At my knitting group on Wednesday, I crocheted the shells and then yesterday my daughter and I sat on the floor and I improvised and crocheted the ties and straps to fit her 3 year old body.

I think it came out quite well!

I've always wanted to be a mermaid, too -- I guess having a mermaid for a daughter is the next best thing.

Oh. My. Goshness. That is freaking adorable. So cute, and I can't believe you made it so quick!

Any chance you could send me the pattern? I need to make those!

Oh my gosh! Anneliese is has asked me about a hundred times already where she can get one. Any chance you'd be interested in a swap? My crochet skills are about zero.
