I'm so excited to share a free sewing pattern for the cutest little felt mermaid softie. It is a tiny size that fits in pockets and purses for an easy toy that can be brought anywhere like a waiting room or waiting in line. Change up the colors for mermaids that look like your child.
The small size makes it a quick sew on the machine or a quick sew by hand. This works great for a child practicing their sewing machine skills or their hand sewing skills.
This PDF downloadable pattern comes in only ONE SIZE and two options. It has a one inch square on the pattern so that it can be printed the correct size. You can find all the instructions for cutting and sewing them in the mini felt mermaid softie sewing tutorial.
The mermaids are set against the background of their long, long hair and then sewed into a little pillow. The mermans are set against a water background, and then sewed into a little pillow.
Each can be customized with a crown or beard, and all the different colors for the hair, water, skin, shirt, and tail. Then added unique stitching for each mermaid.
I chose to have the mermaids stuffed as little pillows to make them so much easier to sew. It's just sewing a rectangle instead of the arms and tail.
