Easy like Sunday morning! This mesmerizing pillow is nothing but chill -- super easy to stitch without a lot of thought, it's the perfect project to kick up your feet, relax, and take a little mental vacation... Sunday morning or anytime.
Worked on needlepoint canvas and finished by adding a fabric backing with a sewing machine, this project will provide hours of stitching enjoyment and years of "where did you get that amazing pillow?!" compliments! (But if the sewing aspect strikes fear in your heart, don't worry -- you can skip the sewing altogether and simply frame the finished bargello panel to hang it on the wall.)
Available in your choice of two color options, as a custom "choose your own colors" kit, or as a PDF pattern only. Select your choice using the buttons above.
*Please note, this kit will make the bargello FRONT of a pillow only. You'll need to add 1 yard of any fabric of your choice to sew the back of the pillow. Basic machine sewing is required to attach the backing and finish the pillow.
