This all-inclusive kit will provide everything you need to make one adorable mermaid peg doll and felt clamshell bed. This is a great project for hobbyists of all ages -- a DIY mermaid toy!
There is nothing more satisfying than creating hand-made toys for children from all natural materials. This beautifully packaged set provides you with detailed, illustrated directions and templates to guide you through sewing your very own mermaid peg doll with her felt seashell bed. Made of four pieces of felt, the bed is lined with pink and very sturdy. The peg doll can tuck inside to take a nap, or it would be a wonderful hanging necklace for saving summer treasures if you added a piece of yarn.
We recommend this kit for children ages 7 and up with some adult supervision. The finished toy is suitable for children over the age of three.
The directions include basic assembly directions for beginners and more detailed embroidery stitches for experienced crafters. The pattern is 5 pages long with beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and text. The included Stitch Guide will walk you through every step!
