Today I thought I'd share a fun cross stitch design of a pretty orange tailed mermaid, perfect for a fantasy lovers bedroom as a cushion or in a cute frame.
To add a little sparkle why not try replacing one of the yellows in the scales with a metallic gold thread?
I wanted to do a nice fantasy design which did not revolve around pink as you see that a lot on fantasy cross stitch so this made a nice change.
I have a few more ideas for mermaid designs so if you like to stitch fish tailed friends then keep checking back.
