Last June I was in Denver visiting family.  While I was visiting my granddaughter I noticed that she loves mermaids.  I have not yet made her a rug and thought this would be a fun design for her.  So drew up a mermaid and began working on her.
She likes very bright colors not primitive or drab. This was a challenge not to change the colors while hooking.

I had to do yarn for the face to get detail. More fine hooking then I ever do but I think the face turned out.

I added 3 fish and 3 starfish along with some seaweed. I like the overall effect.  I hope she will. In a couple of weeks I will hand deliver it to her for her 5th birthday!


  1. Too cute Tonia! I think I like the background best of all. I'm sure your granddaughter will love it!

  2. It is adorable and she will love it. I love the fish.
