Add that festival vibe to your outfit with these funky Rainbow Bargello Embroidered bangles!
These Bangles are a great embroidery project for beginners as the Bargello pattern is quite simple to do and really effective! They are also quite quick to make! (takes approx 1-2 hours per bangle, depending on your embroidery experience).
This PDF pattern will give you all the instructions required to create your own groovy Bargello Embroidered Bangles!
The sample bangles in the photos show the colours you could sew the bangle edges in, but there is sufficient tapestry wool provided to sew them in any of the shades mentioned in the pattern.
I recommend in the pattern using the high quality Appletons Tapestry Wools that are 100% pure English Wool and are made and dyed in the UK. However, these wools can be substituted for other Tapestry Wool brands such as DMC or Anchor (please note you'll need a larger quantity of DMC Wool as they only contain 8 metres per skein compared to 10 metres in the Appletons Wool skein).
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE BANGLES ARE MADE IN ONE SIZE ONLY SO PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS FOR FIT BEFORE PURCHASING:
THE FINISHED MEASUREMENTS OF THE BANGLE ARE APPROXIMATELY 23.5cm CIRCUMFERENCE X 5cm HEIGHT X 7cm DIAMETER.
Here is a summary of the materials that you will need to make the bangles (more detail is given in the pattern):
6 x Skeins of Appletons Tapestry Wool
1 x Sheet of 10 Count (HPI - Holes Per Inch) Plastic Canvas (you'll need to cut to size)
A Size 18 Tapestry Needle
Embroidery Scissors (for cutting the threads)
Sharp Precision Paper Scissors (for cutting the Plastic Canvas)
The pattern instructions are written in English and include a Beginners Guide to Bargello Embroidery with detailed colour photos, a colour pattern chart and step by step guidance to get you started in this style of embroidery.
