Bargello-a-GoGo is on a mission to revive Bargello embroidery, which was hugely popular in the 60s/70s and this Barbarella Bargello embroidered tote bag is a great accessory to make!
I decided to also provide an A4 printed version of this pattern as well as the PDF version, which gives you all the instructions required to create your own groovy Barbarella Tote Bag.
Bargello embroidery is quite simple, yet really effective as you will see when you embroider this bag!
New to Bargello embroidery? Not a problem! This A4 printed pattern comes with a beginners guide to bargello embroidery, with detailed coloured photos, pattern charts and step by step written instructions to get you started in this vintage craft.
The finished bag measures approx 30cm Width x 8cm Depth x 25cm Height.
Here is a summary of the groovy materials that you will need to make the bag (more detail is given in the pattern):
