Let’s Make It 

Print and cut out patterns from the template. The template includes – 2 parts for body, 2 parts for tail, 2 hand patterns, and top and flower pattern. Trace the patterns on the selected felt fabrics and cut them out nicely.

Take any one of the tail patterns and select the confetti you want to add to the tail. You can either glue the confetti on the tail or stitch them, the ones I used had small hole in the centre.

Take the front body pattern and prepare needle with black or dark shaded thread. Use a black thin gel pen to draw the face details (eyes, nose and lips) on the front body pattern. Stitch the eyes and the nose with the black or dark shaded thread.

Use a red or pink thread to stitch the lip. You can also use a pink highlighter pen to make pink blush patterns on both cheeks of the mermaid doll.

Now take the back body pattern and place it on a flat surface. Place the two hands cut outs on their places by slightly overlapping them with the back body pattern.

Mermaid Sewing

Place the front body pattern on the top of the back pattern, making sure both patterns match nice and evenly on all sides.

Mermaid Sewing

Stitch the body patterns along with the hands, together; but keep the bottom end open. Stitch the two fabric tail patterns together as well; but keep the top end pen for the tail. Once you’re done stitching the upper and lower parts stuff them with leftover felt pieces.

Mermaid Sewing

Place the upper body part about a cm inside the tail. Prepare needle and thread to stitch both upper and lower body parts together around their joint part.

Mermaid Sewing

Choose yarn for the hair and cut several strands of yarns and also prepare needle and thread. Stitch the yarns on the top and back side of the head part, the yarn strands will be the hair of the mermaid.

Mermaid Sewing

Simply align the yarn strands from the top to back side of the head pattern and do running stitch over them with the head to attach them with the head.

Finally, you can either stitch or glue the top and the flower, as you want. If you want to add more details then get creative and craft on!
