Product description

Create your own unique retro wall hanging using the therapeutic vintage sewing craft of Bargello.

This hand curated and high quality kit provides you with all you need to create a stunning wall hanging. It is a lovely gift for a those that like to get creative, or for you to make as special and personal gift for a loved one.

Bargello is a form of needlepoint embroidery stitching, made of flat long stitches sewn in symmetrical and geometric patterns. This simple yet therapeutic method of embroidery was said to originate from the Bargello Castle in Florence, Italy. Hence the name Bargello, but also why it can sometimes be called the 'Florentine Stitch'. But others believe it stems from the Hungarian long stitch. Bargello was particularly popular in the 1970s when the bold patterns and colour combinations were used across fashion and home-ware, and Bargello featured in many handicraft books of the time.

Suitable for any level of stitcher, as Bargello is formed of simple straight stitches building up the colour and pattern. After creating the foundation row, you can just carry on, but attention is needed to continue to ensure you are stitching the correct length and place. The first foundation row is important to be correct as this determines the rest of the pattern.

This kit suits keen sewers who are patient and enjoy the process of sewing, and happy to enjoy a project that takes time, and not ideal for those looking for a quick and instant result! Although the final product is hugely gratifying!

This kit provides you with all the equipment to make a simple wall hanging as pictured. However, you have the creative freedom to experiment, as the canvas can be easily cut into smaller pieces if you wanted, and the instructions give you three different original 1970s Bargello designs. You could frame your finished piece, or use left over thread to create fringes, pompoms, or tassels. There are lots of possibilities and these are shown in the kit instructions.

Osmond - a modern twist on the popular colour palettes of the 70s
