Sometimes in life you have to make tough decisions. Like, should I enter the mall at JCPenney, or Macy’s? And how many cups of whole wheat flour can I sneak into the pancake batter before Rick will notice? And should I use my Blistex to make a miniature wax sculpture of Adam Levine, or the entire band of One Direction, or Kim Kardashian’s baby bump? And should I do this before, during, or after the faculty meeting?
I didn’t think my recent Joann fabric find was going to spur on any tough decisions.
It was going to become a pillow cover, duh, and it would look like I had spend an entire decade carefully stitching each little scale, and I would blow everyone away since the last pillow I made a decade ago looked like this:
But then I realized that the fabric could also be used to make the tail of a mermaid costume. And I haven’t been a mermaid since my 6th birthday party. And that was only with the help of a cardboard cutout and some wonky looking shell boobs.
Just think, with a few whips of the needle I could become this blank-eyed vixen. (Maybe she was whipped in the eyes with that needle?) Conch shells the size of my cat can’t be hard to find.
Like I said, tough decisions.
What’s your vote: pillow or mermaid costume? Or maybe none of the above and instead a pillow sewn into the shape of Adam Levine’s face? That would be totally normal, right?
