There are so many things I love about Bargello — the patterns, the different ways to use color . . . I could go on and on.
But Bargello is so easy and so simple and so fast to stitch, that it makes anything you put it on special and turns something everyday into something special and worthy of being a gift.
That’s why I’m crazy about the things Allison Durno stitches and has in her Flickr photostream. She’s put Bargello onto a series of coffee mugs (bought at a chain craft store and onto a bookmark with a pretty metal frame.
