"Kimono Imperial Ornament"
This delightfully sophisticated ornament finishes as a 4x4
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.
