PippinKits Bargello Tapestry Kits require just one simple stitch but are so eye-catching when they’re finished. I have loved designing this Bargello project and am very excited 😆 to share this beautiful and traditional style of tapestry with you. The Appletons wool included in all my kits is British made. 


It’s hard to believe that Bargello (which originated in Italy) has been around for centuries because it looks so modern and vibrant. It’s quick to work up, creating stunning patterns which are so full of colour. This one is based on the classic pomegranate pattern. Perhaps it would make a lovely gift for friends or family members who might enjoy some proper thread therapy. 


I hope you agree that this Bargello Cushion is a really pretty item. It’s such fun to do and it’s lovely to end up with something really useful too.
