    Nice video. Simple sweet and straight to the point yet you covered every detail. Might want to consider a follow up on transferring the pattern onto fabric. I am curious to know, because of the fin you chose, will you sew around the fin so that it is sealed off from the rest of the fluke and doesn't shift too much inside or would you just sew around the entire thing?

    Sew around the fin and leave a hole to remove monofin. Same style as the kids tails. See Magictail, Fin Fun etc.

    Mine is actually a little different, since Iím so tall I didnít have enough fabric to make the fluke so I found this ombrť fabric that matched mine and did a skirt sort of speak over the monofin. Since my monofin is flexible Iím able to fit it through the tail without having it go through the bottom. But like I said Iíll definitely explain that in the other video
