Bargello-a-GoGo is on a mission to revive Bargello embroidery, which was hugely popular in the 60s/70s and this Bargello Cat Cushion is a fun accessory to add to your home!
Bargello embroidery is quite simple, yet really effective as you will see when you embroider this groovy cat!
New to Bargello embroidery? Not a problem! This 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 kit comes in a groovy white cardboard presentation box with a kit label on the lid of the box. It would therefore also make a great gift.
The high quality Appletons Tapestry Wool that is included in this kit is 100% pure English Wool and is made in the UK.
The finished cushion measures approx 39cm in Length x 21 cm Height at it's widest points.

You may also want to use some masking tape to secure the canvas edges when sewing. Notes on how to do this are included in the pattern.
Please also note that the following items are NOT INCLUDED in the kit but I would recommend them for turning the completed canvas into a cushion:
Sewing Machine with a standard presser foot or walking foot
Medium-Weight fabric for the cushion backing measuring approx 60cm Length x 40cm Height
Matching sewing machine thread
Approx 1kg of toy stuffing (amount may vary slightly depending on how full you would like your finished cushion)
Dressmaking scissors (for cutting the canvas and fabric)
The kit does provide step-by-step instructions (with photos) for how to turn the finished bargello canvas into a cushion but you may have some exciting alternative ideas about how you want to finish the canvas, such as framing it. The creative possibilities are endless!
