Bargello-a-GoGo is on a mission to revive Bargello embroidery, which was hugely popular in the 60s/70s!
My inspiration behind this striking Owl Wall Hanging was my nan's 1970's Macrame Owl Wall Hanging that she had in her home when I was growing up.
You'll see from the photos that the Owl has been designed in some striking, bright bold colours so you can see it clearly from a distance! It would make a fun, retro addition to any home!
Bargello embroidery is quite simple, yet really effective as you will see when you embroider this groovy wall hanging! It also has no compensation stitches so it has full Bargello Stitches all the way round!
The owl is finished off with a wooden dowel that is attached near the bottom. I also designed the owl with some fun eyes and nose detail within the Bargello Stitching.
It is an ideal project for beginner-intermediate embroiderers as it is a fairly quick project that can be sewn over a couple of days or several evenings during the week.
The high quality Appletons Tapestry Wools that are recommended in this pattern are 100% pure English Wool and are made and dyed in the UK.
New to Bargello embroidery? Not a problem!
The 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 owl measures approx 18cm Width x 30cm Height at the widest/longest points (excluding the string for hanging the owl).
