Pusheen Mermaid Amigurumi- Free Pattern

My niece seems to be obsessed with the pusheen cat lately. Her pajamas, her notebooks, and whatever things little girls own has this cute little gray character stamped on it. So when she asked me to make her a tiny pusheen plushee. I was up for the challenge.

I only noticed her pusheen mermaid pajamas after taking this photo.

Since I was unable to find any free pattern, I decided to create my own. The pattern is simple enough. What I’ve learned from making this amigurumi though was that small things are just as hard (if not harder) to make than its larger counterpart. It just goes to show that good things can also come in small packages.

So here’s my first ever pattern. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the pattern, and do share your finished work on be via instagram @fivechubbyfingers. I would love to see how your pusheen mermaid turned out.
