Mermaid is a lovely design for a seaside-loving child. Mermaid is suitable for all levels of stitcher including beginners as well as being a lovely quick project for more experienced stitchers. There will be plenty of spare wool to use if you intend to extend the design and add a name or extra decoration in the border.
Once stitched, Mermaid can be framed as a picture or used as the centre of a larger cushion.
As a rough age guide, Mermaid is suitable for children age 7+.
Each Mermaid tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Eight whole skeins of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart with additional alphabet chart, and instructions
- John James tapestry needle
- Needle threader

Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but is useful for beginners as they can concentrate on stitching without having to hold the canvas at the same time.
For Mermaid, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
Printed canvas area: 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10″ x 10″ (25cm x 25cm)
