For Valentines or anytime, this bold heart makes some amazing wall art. This design puts a spin on a classic bargello stitch pattern, off-setting the color repeat to create a heart shape. We love it as a wall hanging attached to a wooden dowel, or as a framed piece to display as part of a modern gallery wall.
Finished size: 11” wide x 11.5” long (including dowel); bargello panel alone measures 9" wide x 10.75" long.
SHOPPING LIST (required materials):
- 10 skeins of DMC Tapestry Wool (exact colors used are listed in the PDF pattern)
- 1 plastic canvas sheet (10-count size)
- Size 18 tapestry needles
- 11" chunky wooden dowel
LINK TO FRAME: Here's the link to purchase the frame we used from Amazon. We used the 12" x 16" size, and the included mat is almost the perfect size. (It's just a tad narrow, and covers up a few of the side stitches. For a more perfectly-fitting mat, purchase the frame and have a custom mat cut to size at a frame shop).
