  • Pin the dorsal fin together and sew two parallel lines from the base to the end of the fins.
  • Pin one yellow stomach to one pink seahorse and sew a row of horizontal lines onto the yellow felt.

  • Do the same to the other seahorse.
  • Glue the eyes together.

  • Sew or glue the eyes onto the seahorse.
  • Place the coronet and dorsal fin in their positions and pin the front and back together.

  • Starting from the base of the coronet, sew up along the seahorse’€™s head.
  • Once you have passed the coronet, change your stitch to a blanket stitch and sew all the way around the seahorse until you reach the base of the dorsal fin.

  • Change your sewing stitch to a plain stitch and sew along the dorsal fin.
  • There should be an opening from the tip of the dorsal fin to the base of the coronet.
  • Stuff with polyester fiberfill, then sew the gap closed with a blanket stitch.

I hope you will love making our seahorse!
