Easy Bargello is a collection of 25 homeware and gift projects to make which revive the traditional needle point technique of Bargello.
Bargello is an easy craft to master as it comprises just one simple straight stitch. Striking patterns form by repeating the stitch in different colors and arrangements. It is not only methodical and mindful but creative too as, once the basics are understood, the reader will be able to design their own patterns.
The book features a short history of this traditional technique, followed by an exploration of the different fabrics and materials used and explains everything a beginner needs to get started on their first project. Projects range from beginner and intermediate through to advanced levels. Each pattern features step-by-step instructions and modern life-style photography beautifully illustrates the construction of each piece.
This is an ideal collection to utilize a crafter’s thread stash and experiment with different color combinations. Projects include: hoop, purse, wall hanging, greeting’s card, pillow, plastic canvas plant pot cover.
