I was visiting a friends house recently, she had made a little mermaid tail pillow. I was dying to make one! Good thing my niece LOVES mermaids and had a birthday coming up! I searched and searched for a pattern or directions. No such luck. I made sure to snap lots of pictures so I could share. My niece loves it. She uses it as a body pillow and snuggles it while reading and relaxing.
What you’ll need:
Two yards fabric. Or less depending on the size of your pillow. I found this amazing scale fabric at Jo Ann’s. It was full price, so I could use a 40% off coupon.
Create a tail pattern. Quick Google search will give you a ton of ideas.
Then be sure your scales are pointing the right direction! Mine aren’t here. I would have been so upset.
Cut 2 pieces
Then with right sides together, sew around your pillow leaving a small gap for your stuffing.
Of course add Lavender!!!! This is a pillow for chilling out after all 🙂
Then sew your gap closed.
Ta da!!! That’s it. This pillow took about an hour start to finish. Creating the pattern took the longest. It could take a lot less time. This is a definite beginner project. So easy!
