You will want this darling berry and medallion as companion pieces to your By the Sea sewing set! The berry's mermaid is surrounded by her fishy friends, and is relaxing on the beach in the medallion design – a perfect topper for an ort jar or other keepsakes. (Look for jars like this at your favorite craft and hobby store.)
NOTE: Since Mermaid Berry was first published, the chartpak included cuts of silk gauze for both pieces shown. However, due to the lack of silk gauze for the foreseeable future, the chartpak will now included only charts and instructions.
These are also companion designs for the By the Sea needle book set.
