Some Fun Bargello

How's this for wild???? This was stitched by a customer using her fathers old neckties and color coordinating the fibers to match her decor.  Not much painting involved, just a basic layout and a combination of alternating decorative stitches and bargello patterns.

  2. Thanks Missy. Part of the credit has to go to my finisher who can read my mind when it comes to translating ideas into reality. All the ties were hand stitched onto the finished piece! Sometime in the near future I'll find the time to do a line drawing and stitch guide for this one.

    Design a canvas for Bargello that the customer can add ties. Great idea.

  4. Hi Pat and crew at Designers Desk! I found my notes on the layout and stitches for this piece and will do a line drawing soon. That will allow your customers to choose their own colors to coordinate with the ties.

  5. Wish I had remembered to post this on Father's Day - guess I missed the boat on this one!
