I am so excited to offer this gorgeous hand embroidery pattern based on the illustration by the amazing Meni Chazipanagiotou. The design features a stunning mermaid, breaching out of a giant sea shell under a crescent moon. Translating this artwork into hand embroidery was such a relaxing treat for me. I played with soft color gradients with touches of metallic floss. Only three stitches are used in the pattern but I would not suggest it for beginners unless you are ready to learn long and short stitch. This is my most time consuming embroidery pattern so please give yourself the space to go slow and really enjoy the process.
Your purchase includes the Mermaid Dreams embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery pattern includes a shopping list with Cosmo and converted DMC floss colors, a stitch direction diagram, color photo of the stitched pattern, a stitch and color key, and the design sized for a 9" hoop ready to print. Resize and crop as needed.
The beginner guide includes a supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience, tips on how to get started, including pattern transfer suggestions for future projects, plus diagrams of stitches. The beginner guide can also be found onlinehere with helpful videos, plus you can find some additional tutorialshere.
