SKU: T-034 Category:

The mermaid conceals her treasure safely beneath a coral reef, then swims away to collect more. Her treasure is filled with gold and jewels, and surrounded by shells and sea creatures. A shaft of sunlight filters through the water to highlight the sparkling treasure, and catches a flash of her tail as she leaves.

The Mermaid’s Treasure features a canvas with painted backgrounds to provide depth to the stitches. Stitchers will place the mermaid’s tail where they choose, and further personalize the project with the embellishments and treasures.
