This groovy Heart pattern was adapted from one of my vintage Bargello pattern books and the colours were inspired by a set of vintage 1970s curtains I used to own.
The high quality Appletons Tapestry Wools that are included in this kit are 100% pure English Wool and are made and dyed in the UK.
This kit will make a 41cm x 41cm canvas size that you could turn into a variety of fun finished items, such as a cushion or seat cover (see last photo examples - please note that you would need extra fabric for a cushion or seat cover that isn't included in this kit) or you could turn the finished canvas into a framed wall hanging or seat cover.
This kit is great for mindfulness as research has shown that stitching can provide positive mental health benefits from doing the repetitive bargello type of stitch.
This fun kit contains the following:
29 x Skeins of Appletons Tapestry Wool
A Size 18 Tapestry Needle by British Manufacturer John James
12 HPI Mono Zweigart Tapestry Canvas (to make the pattern that will measure approx 41cm x 41cm when finished). Please note that this canvas will be posted flat (folded) rather than rolled.
A4 printed pattern booklet with a beginners guide to bargello embroidery and instructions and coloured charts (the instructions are written in English, with numbered pages for easy reference and is printed on nice thick 120 gsm paper). The booklet is secured with a purple cardboard backing and a rose gold bulldog clip.
A3 Glossy Chart (detailing the pattern in full)
A3 Glossy photo of the finished canvas
You will also receive a 'Bargello is Groovy' Tote Bag that is ethically produced and is 100% cotton canvas. The amazing artwork on the tote bag was created by a local Sussex based artist, Natalie from Thirteen Scorpios, which was then printed onto these bags. This tote bag is perfect for storing your kit in as well as other items.
This beautiful kit would also make a wonderful gift because it is presented in a lovely, white coloured smooth, high quality A3 size gift box (see photo).
OTHER ITEMS REQUIRED BUT NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT:
Embroidery Scissors (check out the Fiskar embroidery scissors that are currently listed for sale in the shop).
Masking tape or bias binding for securing the canvas edging whilst stitching your bargello embroidery (please see my video tutorial on the video tutorials page for more information on using bias binding to secure your canvas edges)
Any other additional materials that you require to turn your canvas into a finished project such as a cushion, seat cover, framed wall hanging etc.
