I have another quick and easy embroidery project for you!
- Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (get it here)
- Embroidery hoop (4 inch)
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I used muslin)
- 743 – yellow
- 995 – dark blue
- 996 – medium blue
- 3706 – coral
- 3770 – very light peach
- 747 – light blue
- 840 – light brown
This is the mermaid design we’ll be using for our project.
I chose to leave out the blushing cheeks. If you want to add them, feel free to do so!
You can use whatever color thread you’d like for your mermaid’s hair and skin. I chose blonde hair and fair skin for Maribel, because that’s what the book shows and it’s what I have.
Use the coral thread and the Satin Stitch for Maribel’s mouth.
I finally settled on the light brown.
Use the Back Stitch for this portion as well.
Isn’t she pretty?!
