One Day Ornament - Bargello Bell

This little ornament was a quick stitch and a simple finish.  The free chart for this bargello bell is available here. It uses a very small amount of nine colors of DMC floss and a little DMC gold thread. I stitched it on a scrap of 28 count linen I had left over from the Sampler Pear I.

I made two oval shapes for the front and the back and joined them together with invisible thread.  I thought about making a twisted cord, but the invisible thread did such a nice job that I decided it didn’t need one. Start to finish in the same day.

  1. Nice! The moire silk for the back is splendid for a Christmas Ornament too. I think I might just make myself one of these:-)
