Fantastic, Easy Printed Sewing Pattern to make your own
Mythical Ancestor to the Seahorse
The Merhorse (Hippocampus)
New and Uncut!
This pattern includes pattern and easy to read instructions for making a stuffed Merhorse 18" long x 9" tall. This is not a kit. I, designed this pattern and many others and had them printed. My business name is Fantasy Creations (please check out my etsy store). The pattern was published in 1984. It is new and uncut. This pattern is easy to follow and sew. I can recommend this pattern for any experienced seamstress. The finished Merhorse is suitable for all ages if the seamstress uses childsafe eyes. When you hold the finished Merhorse you will want to tuck the tail under your arm and it gives you the comforting sensation of being hugged. This is something unique to this design. I'm sure you'll want to make several Merhorses because this creature is unique and wonderful.
I designed over 100 different stuffed animals and sold them in my gift shop in the early 1980s. I made patterns for some of my best selling designs so that other creative folks could make these same adorable stuffed animals to sell at church bazars or give as gifts. Before I made the patterns I asked women who bought patterns what they liked and would want me to avoid. My patterns are full sized, printed on one side of the paper only, the instructions are in one area so they will not be cut up, and I wrote the instructions and illustrated them clearly and in simple English. The pattern is published on newsprint, not tissue paper. It is still fresh and not yellowed or brittle.
FREE "Tips" for Success Included
After years of designing and making stuffed animals I put all of the wisdom I had garnered into a "Tips" sheet which is included for free.
I guarantee satisfaction. If you look at the pattern and read the instructions, within 3 days of receiving it, and want to return it to me uncut I will refund your payment.
I reserve the copyright on all of the patterns and photos. Feel free to hand craft as many stuffed animals as you like for craft sales and gifts but do not reproduce or sell the pattern or mass produce the animals as a manufacturer. Contact me if you have any questions. I really want my customers to be happy.
FREE Bunny pattern when you purchase two or more patterns from me.
Please note : This is a pattern only, it is not a kit. If you do not have access to fake fur where you live the Merhorse can be made with other soft knit fabrics such as veleur. Email me if you have any questions. I am very friendly.
