Sea Creatures Sale! And new Merfolk Expansion & Seahorse Pattern

4 Comments

Hello everybody! I hope everyone is staying safe and happy and healthy as spring is heating up. I have a few new patterns to celebrate #MerMay!

Last year, I released my Merpeople pattern, which was so much fun! Especially since some of the merpeople had octopus body variations. Well, shortly after releasing the pattern I immediately wished I had included a seahorse, then later a jellyfish. So I spent the rest of the year thinking of new mermaid ideas to create this new expansion pack!

Like my previous expansion packs, this one has extra parts that you use with a base pattern. In this case if you already have my Merpeople plush or my Centaur then you can swap out their lower bodies for a fun new seahorse, jellyfish, or fish-tailed horse (an ichthyocentaur). There are also new faces, hair styles, and accessories to jazz them up. You can also use the head from my Fawn & Unicorn plush pattern to make a ‘merpony’ or hippocampus. But if you’re looking at the seahorse mermaid and wishing I just had a regular seahorse, I whipped up a pattern for that too!

As always, the sewing pattern contains applique templates if you want to sew on the facial features by hand or regular sewing machine. But if you want to do embroidery, those files are sold separately. The seahorses use the same basic eye design as the merfolk, but simplified, so I included them in the same pack for the same price as if it were 2 designs ❤
To celebrate the launch, these new patterns will be 30% off from now through next Wednesday, the 20th. The compatible base patterns will also be 30% off. Meanwhile all other sea creatures will be 20% off and the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new patterns, I hope you enjoy them!

  1. Hi, I wanted to know are you doing the Halloween contest this year? If you are I would like to enter.

  2. FWIW, not a fan of the seahorse. I found the head attachment method to be bizarre, and much more trying than either the head-inside-then-pull-through method or just hand attachment. Leaving large parts of the spines unattached and then having to twist them was frustrating, and having the turning opening so close to a huge unsewn area made it very unstable during construction. I think if I do this again I’ll probably change a bunch things about how it’s put together.

    You can remove this because I don’t want to hurt your sales and I love your patterns, but I did want to give some feedback somehow. D:

    • I really appreciate your honest feedback! There are certainly several different ways to construct a design of this type, so I’m sorry the one suggested didn’t work out for you 😦 But I am glad that you know what might work better for you in the future!
      I’m always open to suggesting different construction methods in my patterns and try to include them whenever my time allows, so I’ll certainly consider what you said for future designs! Thank you again for your honestly 🙂
