Bargello is trending! Stitch some colour into your life with 15 attractive projects.

Bargello stitching is a form of needlepoint and making a comeback.

There is a project for everyone, whether you are new to bargello, or are an original bargello fan. Tina Francis shows you how to combine bold, bright colours in attractive, almost psychedelic patterns to create the illusion of 3-D. Use her easy-to-follow charts and approachable instructions to create 15 projects including cushions, wall art, pincushions, bangles and a brooch.

Bargello is easy to master, quick to achieve and very addictive. The stitches take on a rhythm of their own which makes it extremely relaxing and before long you’ll be measuring your days in centimetres not hours. With only a handful of materials required canvas, tapestry wool, tapestry needle and instructions bargello is certain to become your craft of choice.
