How to Make a Simple Mermaid Doll with Yarn

Mermaids are a beautiful metaphor for staying afloat, no matter how hard the waves may crash upon the rocks.

This video tutorial shows how I took the idea of Yarn Baby (Tassle) dolls and created Mermaids with a little bit of yarn, a whole lot of love and a little bit of head scratching.

Oh, yes, also a few sneezes are included with love from our aged rescued Chihuahua mystery mix dear old dog who seems to respond to the making of video by coming into the studio and sneezing loudly whenever the video camera is turned on. Why? Who knows?

Anyhow, I hope that you will enjoy making Yarn Dolly Mermaids!

Here’s the video tutorial:

How to Make Very Simple Yarn Dolls

I have loved making yarn dolls (aka ‘Yarn Babies’ or  ‘Yarn Tassel Dolls’) ever since I was a little girl.

Since we are living in such challenging times these days of the pandemic, it struck me that making a video of how to take some scraps of yarn and turn them into a dear little doll would be a soothing and lovely thing to do.

These little yarn dolls are a simple and fun thing to make with children, or just as a way of calming and centering yourself.

They are a lovely little gift, and a lot of them will fit in a pocket, so they can be given away freely, or mailed, or hung in a tree with a note, perhaps, that says:  ‘I wish you well, so I made this for you’.

Here’s the video of how to make Simple Yarn Dollies:

 

Take good care my friends!  Hugs all round. ❤
