Little Red Fish
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
A little mermaid languishes in her palace, dreaming of escaping her underwater realm and of rising above the waves to discover an another world.
A shoal of fish passes by, all alike, except for one, the little red fish. Is is a secret message? A call to action? What will happen next?
The layout of the design is quite interesting, with the sun featured in a mirror effect, like to worlds opposed. The rays of the sun seem to bloom into numerous petals of color.
The pattern only includes whole cross stitches. It was worked (see photos) on 14 ct ecru Aida fabric with metallic filaments from the Zweigart range.
Once the embroidery is completed, it can be framed in an oval embroidery hoop (10 inch / 25cm in diameter)
