It is officially December, which means it is officially the holiday season!! WOOT! This blog will be HOPPING all month, and it’s starting out with tons of freebies from Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates.
Team Mermaid is kicking off their third year in a row of “12 Days of Christmas Freebies” and today’s freebie is amazing. Seriously. You’re going to die of excitement.
Megan designed some adorable stuffies! They’re called “Barnacle Buddies” and there are so many ways that you can make this doll yours! She created both a mermaid and a pirate with this FREE pattern, but you can make the teeniest adjustment and turn them into anything or anybody. So so so cute!!
I’m going to keep it so very real for you right now. This was intended for my niece for Christmas….who is also a redhead. And actually the only real redhead in our family. But I’m about ten seconds away from keeping my little mermaid girl. I mean.
One of the coolest things about this pattern is that these dolls actually fit into 18″ doll clothes. Which means if you’ve already got patterns for American Girl style dollies, you’ve got patterns that will fit the Barnacle Buddies! Is that not the coolest thing ever? You can make your kiddo a stuffie and then make them matching clothes. I die.
The tail is actually an added piece of clothing for your stuffie. Underneath, she has adorable skinny legs. Throw some Dolly Bonny Leggings on this girl and she’s ready to go!
What are you waiting for? Go snag your pattern and get to sewing ALL the Barnacle Buddies!!
