Bargello Top Note with Frayed Ribbon Flower
What is Bargello? Bargello is a form of embroidery that is created through a series of upright flat stitches laid out in interesting patterns. This technique was in the June 2010 Stampin' Success magazine and I just had to try it. I cut strips of striped DSP (stripes work best) in varying widths, 1/8, 1/4 & 1/2 inches. I used a piece Whisper White cardstock for the base cut at 5.5 x 4.25 inches. Align colors into desired pattern and adhere to the cardstock and then I ran it through the Big Shot.
The ribbon is cut at 6 inches and then used linen thread and did a running stitch along one edge. Once that was done I straightened out the ribbon and on the opposite side of the thread I sniped 1/8th inch clips down the ribbon. Once that was done I pulled it together to form a circle and tied the thread and added the brad. Very easy.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
