Today’s mermaid music:
Carriage House Samplings designs historic needlework patterns. They have a cute series of alphabets from which I chose M for Mermaid.
Their project was made into a little pillow ornament. I decided to make mine a patch to sew on my denim jacket.
The design was cross-stitched on 32-count linen. I created a half-inch seam around the design, used Dritz Fray Check around the edges, folded each edge under 1/4" and then again another 1/4" before sewing the patch to the center of the back of my jacket.
