The second in a new range of exciting Bargello Design kits.

Bargello Ribbons uses a rich colour theme in a curving geometric pattern. Sewn over several threads, Bargello Embroidery builds quickly using a simple straight stitch. Rocaille beads are added at the end for extra sparkle.

 

The name Bargello originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello palace in Florence, which have a "flame stitch" pattern. It is thought that the embroidery style actually originates in Eastern Europe, where all sorts of Geometric designs were created. 
It was a craze in the 1970's to stitch only the flame patterns in extraordinary colour combinations. 

Quite mesmerising patterns can be created and repeated over again. With different patterns forming over a sequence of colour changes.

Traditional designs are very colourful, and use many hues of one colour, which produces intricate shading effects. It's fun to use a few repeating shapes to represent trees or flowers. Different shapes can be seen depending on how you look!
 

 

This design can be a cushion, bag front or picture.
