Another search through my craft stuff, looking to catalogue my frames this time and I came across further projects from school.
Another item from junior school, but a year or two later and another from the first year at senior school. Each item with the same purpose, both red yet with different designs and levels of decoration.
This first has a whipped stitch boarder and ties just at the waist.
The later version loops over the neck and ties at the waist. The pockets are decorated with a mermaid and what is supposed to be a large shell with my initials in and a couple of fishes.
Sadly although I had access to proper stranded thread I had no idea that the thread should be separated to suit the size and style of the design. So using the full six strands my mermaid is rather a chunky thing.
