The Mermaid Treasure Box
This is a design with multiple uses – you can stitch the box lid only as a picture to frame – or you stitch it in the “box & toys” style it is pictured.
The lovely Mermaid sits on her rock, surrounded by treasures of the Sea. All sides of the box are covered with richly ornamented panels, you can work a “Shell case”, a scissors fob and a sheath.
Use of plenty and varied threads, metallics, beads, crystals and Pearls makes the stitching as interesting as the different stitches aside the base of cross stitches. There are Special Stitches and even some Stumpwork – all is explained well with diagrams for help.
A beautiful alphabet over one is provided, so you can personalize this embroidery.
The size of the main design (box lid) is 161 x 112 stitches.
