Ariel’s Sisters Cross-Stitching

I did it again! I love me some cross-stitching. It’s such a nice activity to do while tanning outside and/or while listening to a podcast. I have learned so much while stitching cuz it’s a soothing exercise that you’re productive while learning.

Now, ever since I was a little girl I loved “the Little Mermaid”. I had the Barbie dolls, where the dolls had both fish tails and dresses. As I grew up, I acquired some more Little Mermaid paraphernalia in that I have plastic renditions of Ariel’s sisters and the dolly versions too. While the dolly versions are quite cute, they all have the same hair, which according to the Disney film, is not the case. All the girls had different hair. Anyway, so I love Ariel and her sisters.

There are seven total daughters that King Triton had: Attina, Andrina, Alana, Aquata, Arista, Adella, and Ariel. Ariel is the youngest, and all of the girls have different colored hair, eyes, and tails. So, I took the Disney version and expanded upon it for my cross-stitching endeavor.

I designed all of the characters and chose their color schemes based off of the Disney version. This took me about 2-3 hours each mermaid. And I designed each with graphing paper beforehand and used the same counting scheme for each mermaid so they matched exactly (except for their hair height, ponies to the sky!).

If you have any questions, let me know! Super simple, you just have to be mindful of the counting scheme, for messing up on these is NOT an option!
