                                                            "Kimono Imperial Ornament"

This delightfully sophisticated ornament finishes as a 4”x4” Mini-Kimono.  As an ornament, this kimono highlights a beautiful Bargello pattern in Imperial gold, red, and blue.  Using DMC Floche, Kreinik metallics, DMC & ThreadworX over-dyed floss, and a few beads, this kimono will make an impression.  You will explore how wonderfully the Bargello pattern fits into the kimono and stitch a unique variation of an octagonal Rhodes stitch.  The kit will include the canvas, all the threads and beads, instructions and photos.  Student will provide 8” stretcher bars (2 pair), laying tool, frame or frame weight, usual stitching supplies, and light and magnification if desired.
