So my last project for fin covers left me with a lot of little foam scraps that I needed to use up somehow. I thought, mini fin covers would be a great idea, and could be used for a lot of things!
I did the same procedure as before tracing out a shape, only this time, I could go with any fin shape I wanted since I was making a much smaller scale cover. As inspiration, I used this Al Merrick cover that already came with one of my fins:

I did my usual stitiching, but I followed my trace line when stitching since I didn’t need to worry about fitting a fin, and I didn’t want to try to erase any pencil marks after I was finished.
Afterwards, I used a small grommet setting tool (shown in the pic below) and set a 1/16″ grommet into the front bottom corner, and even decorated it with a silver Sharpie to look like the full grown version.
