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!
