Summer sale! $5 USD (reg $8) This is the complete pattern for my original Little Mermaid Matryoshka Dolls--the very ones I sell in my shop. An adorable little friend ready for fun in the sun! (she's more the sunbathing type than the swimming type--just so you know.)
This pattern will work for a beginner or accomplished sewist. Do as much or as little machine sewing or hand-sewing as you like. Add embellishments, or keep it simple. Embroider the face or just sew a couple of buttons on there and let imaginitive play do the rest. You really can't go wrong! With this pattern it's (relatively) easy to make a full size, soft doll--without having to worry about stuffing and turning arms and legs, sewing separate clothing, or gathering yarn for hair. Finished doll is 14 inches tall when she "stands" on the curve of her tail.
This pattern includes scanned pattern pieces, step by step instructions and photo illustrations. Note this listing is NOT for a finished doll. You can find those in my shop too though :)
This pattern is an instant download! Just pay and start sewing! You will need Adobe to open the files.
