Do You Want to Design and Bead a Mermaid?

Do you like mermaids? Do you enjoy beading? Do you want to design your own mermaid but not sure where to get started? Imagine creating and beading a mermaid that you designed (well partially designed) by yourself! Sounds fun? Then, let's begin!

Below is a partial mermaid pattern that I created on a brick stitch graph. Print out the image by going to this link, bit.ly/mermaidbase. Once you have your printed pattern, have fun adding facial features, hair, clothing, etc. in any color that you want. Colored pencils may help you do that.


After you have fashioned your mermaid, this is where your brick stitch bead weaving skills come in. If you have attended my brick stitch beading class, this should activity should be great practice. If you're new to bead weaving, search YouTube for some brick stitch tutorials. I have listed a few basic brick stitch videos here and images to follow here.

When you're done, you will have your own customized mermaid. Here are my finished mermaids.
If you don't want to design your own mermaid and want to get straight to beading, you can purchase the "red head" mermaid on Bead Crumbs, Etsy.
