Also known as Florentine work, bargello embroidery is created from upright stitches laid out in geometric and vibrant patterns. It’s incredibly easy to pick up and only needs minimal supplies, some you might already have lying around in your craft room. Here Amanda Walker guides you through a handy how-to for a planter we just know you’ll want to have proudly on display!

Essentials
  1. Plastic canvas, ten count
  2. Tapestry wool: pink, yellow, orange, turquoise, white
  3. Blunt end embroidery needle, size 20
    1. From the plastic canvas, cut a rectangle measuring 21 squares wide and 94 squares long, making sure that the edges are smooth and free from any sharp points. The chart is designed to fit around a small tin but can be adjusted to fit your plant. The pattern is repeated along the rectangle six times.

    2. Download the chart from sewmag.co.uk, and start stitching. Leave the first vertical row of holes empty; there will be three empty rows at the end of the rectangle after the embroidery is complete. These will be used to connect the two ends together. Stitch the turquoise zig zag first so the other colours will be easier to fill in.

    3. Overlap the empty holes at the beginning of the work over the three empty rows at the end. Thread a needle with yarn and stitch through both layers to connect the two ends together. At the top, reverse the direction of the stitches to fill in the empty holes. Secure the end of the yarn firmly. Thread a needle with pink yarn, then over sew all the way around the top and base of the planter.
