Whether as an ornament or box top, this delightful kimono highlights a beautiful Bargello pattern in Imperial gold, red and blue. Using DMC Floche/floss, Kreinik metallics, DMC & Threadworx over-dyed floss, and a few beads, this kimono will make an impression. Stitch just the kimono and create a regal ornament or finish the entire 5” x 5” piece for a box-top or frame. You’ll explore how wonderfully the Bargello pattern fits into the kimono, stitch a unique variation of an octagonal Rhodes Stitch, Daisey Eyelets, French Knots, Diagonal Mosaic variations, Checkerboard Mosaic, Slanted Gobelin, and surround the whole thing with a royal blue border, Double Oblong Cross, Pavilion Border, couching and Milanese background. A line-drawn canvas or accurate thread counts allow for an ease in stitch placements.
