For a long time now, we’ve wanted to try and make our own plush dolls. So this week we finally gave in to this crazy notion and started designing our very own mermaid dolls. It did take us a while to come up with the perfect pattern … 3 full days of cutting and stitching to be exact!
You can customize your doll with the type of beads you use for the eyes, the colors, the embellishments and even the type of yarn you use for the hair. But make sure you use felt for the body and tail as its a strong material and doesn’t rip easily.
You can download the pattern below to make your own dolls. Make sure to cut out the correct number of pieces of each shape and use them to trace on the felt.
Once you’ve printed the pattern sheet, follow the video below to see the full tutorial of how to make a felt mermaid doll.
