Mermaid at Heart Pillow

This pillow uses two different patterns to complete the project.  You will need the HeartSprinkle Pillow Pattern from HeartSprinkle  and the Mermaid Applique Pattern from Kathy's Kozies.

These would make an adorable gift for the mermaid lover. The color combonations are endless!

What you need:

  • HeartSprinkle Pillow Pattern
  • Mermaid Applique Pattern
  • 1 ball Bernat Blanket Yarn in color of your choice.  I used …..
  • Small amounts or worsted weight yarn for the appliqué – I used Vanna’s Choice for the body,  I Love this Yarn for the hair and tail and lily cotton for the starfish and top
  • Thread for face details
  • Poly-fil
  • D & K Crochet hooks
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors

Level: Begginer - Intermediate

Heart Pillow

Make as instructed in the pattern.

Mermaid Applique

Make as instructed in the pattern.  I did go down to a D hook for the entire applique to make it just a bit smaller.  It will still fit using an F hook as intruded in the pattern as well.


Place the applique on the pillow as you like.  I suggest pinning it sown at the fins and the hair.  Start sewing her on with the body first, then hair and finally tail and fins. 

And there you have have it! 

 HeartSprinkle Pillow

You can also make the Mermaid Heart MOD from Heartsprinkle shown below and put the applique on that one!
