There’s nothing like getting cozy in a warm blanket on a chilly night, sipping your favorite beverage while binge watching Netflix, am I right? And if you’re going to get cozy (or anything else, really), why not do it mermaid style? Today I’m sharing a Free Adult Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern, because why should kids have all the fun?!
Anti-pill fleece is perfect to use for this mermaid tail pattern. It’s so soft and cozy, and is super user friendly to sew with! Imperfections are camouflaged in the fabric which is especially great for beginners. It sews like a dream, and you can often find a great deal at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores during their sales, as well as a lot of prints and solids to choose from.
Okay okay, but if you’re looking for something that the whole family will love to snuggle up in, check out our Blanket Hoodie Free Pattern, sized for both adults and kids! Does multitasking get any better than a blanket and hoodie in one?! I think not.
Whether it’s my favorite free hoodie pattern or a cozy blanket, I love to be comfy as much as possible! You’ll be surprised at how quickly this blanket sews up – once you have the pattern pieces assembled, you’ll have it sewn in less than an hour (my kind of project)!
Let’s get to work – you’ll have your mermaid tail blanket finished in no time!

*Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern is sized to fit most adults. Finished tail is 31” wide at top when flat (62” in diameter) and 60” in length.
*All seam allowances are ½” unless otherwise noted. Use a narrow and long zig zag stitch to accommodate the stretch in fleece.
To start our mermaid tail sewing pattern, cut body, top, and fin as directed on pattern pieces. Be sure to note direction of greatest stretch and layout pattern pieces for body and fin prior to cutting to ensure proper fit on fabric.
Right sides together, pin and stitch the straight edge of one fin to the bottom of one front/back body piece. Repeat with remaining fin and front/back bottom pieces. Right sides together, pin and stitch front to back, leaving top open. Clip curves and turn right side out. Right sides together, pin and stitch front/back top pieces together along straight side edges. Wrong sides together, fold top piece in half, matching curved edges. Pin curved edges to top curved edges of body, matching side seams and stretching body curves to fit top curves (if you’re having trouble with this step, ensure the direction of stretch is the same for both pieces). Stitch along pinned edge and clip close to center point.Turn top upward, and you’ve almost completed this mermaid tail sewing pattern! Now for the final step in this mermaid tail blanket pattern! Topstitch 3/8” from edge around fin for added stability and to help fin keep its shape when in use. Great job!
Hope you enjoyed this free adult mermaid tail blanket pattern! Climb in and enjoy your cozy new blanket!
