Every girl needs a mermaid blanket. The Sea Snuggler Mermaid Blanket from Cucicucicoo is perfect for mermaids of all ages, from kids size 2 to adult size 18.
In winter, my family loves to snuggle on the sofa in front of the TV. My husband snuggles under a blanket that his grandmother crocheted. I have my own crocheted blankie, and the two kids try desperately to steal a corner of our blankets (or the whole thing!).
To fix the problem, I started crocheting a blanket for my son (the older child), but I’m an incredibly slow crocheter. I’m hoping I’ll have my 10-year-old son’s blanket done before he leaves home, but no promises!
So that leaves my poor 8-year-old daughter with no hope of getting her own blankie any time soon. Thankfully, I can sew much faster than I can crochet. My daughter loves all things fairytale, so a mermaid blanket is just perfect for her.
Thanks to the huge size range of the Sea Snuggler Mermaid Blanket, I can sew her a snuggly and gorgeous blanket to tide her hover (pun intended) until I can start a crochet one for her!
The outer fabric is a hologram mermaid scale spandex, that I had leftover from a Little Mermaid Costume. I have no idea why I had so much leftover fabric! I could only get the front and fins out of my remnants, but I managed to piece three larger scrap pieces together to make the back. It’s hard to spot in amongst the print though.
While the mermaid tail is made to be reversible, I wanted the inside to be super-snuggly. I had an enormous amount of blue fleece, that I picked up on Freecycle many years ago. I used the fleece inside out, so the fluffy side was on the right side.
The Sea Snuggler Mermaid Blanket is a fairly simple sewing project, suitable for a confident beginner. It requires sewing curves and a little bit of hand-sewing. The directions are straight-forward and easy to follow.
The big size range means it’s perfect for anyone who wants to be a snuggly mermaid.
And it seems even the dog wants to be a mermaid!
