I saw this cute mermaid costume on Pinterest. It was being offered for sale on Etsy.com for just under $50.
I really wanted one for my baby granddaughter but wasn’t will to spend $50 for it. I knew I could make it myself if only I could find the right pattern. I searched online and found several different free patterns. None of them really worked for me. I ended up using 3 different patterns and combining the pieces to make the version I ended up with.
I used one pattern for the tail, another for the fin, and yet another for the headband. The flower I just crocheted on my own without a pattern and stitched on to the headband.
The Bra is just 2 flowers attached with 10 chain stitches and 20 chain stitches attached to either side and on the tops to tie on the bra. The chain length can be adjusted to fit the baby.
