This adorable canvas candy bowl with its abstract design is lots of fun to stitch. Bargello is combined with a variety of textured stitches worked on 18 count mono canvas. When all the stitching is complete, it is backed with fabric and made into a bowl to hold candies, jewellery or whatnot!

The stitches chosen are needlepoint stitches: bargello, crescent stitch and variations, Scotch, Norwich or waffle, smyrna cross, wheat stitch, triangle stitch and eyelets. Finishing instructions are included.
