Welcome to the August installment of our Fat Quarterly Inspiration Theme Mosaic series.  Each month, we challenge our readers with a theme and ask that you submit photos of your crafty projects that best fit that theme to the Fat Quarterly Community & Inspiration photo pool on Flickr.  For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been watching as you submitted your favorite photos matching our beachy “Underwater Wonders” theme and — wow! — there were some beauties.
