Linda M. Perry created two beautiful bargello spindle bags to accompany her article in the Spring 2022 issue of Spin Off —one rigid and one soft. Linda’s rigid bucket-style bag stitched in ocean blues graced the cover of the issue, but we are delighted to share Linda’s second design for free to current subscribers of Spin Off magazine. The bargello stitches are worked from bottom to top for each stitch across the rows of the canvas. There are loads of options for adapting this shape and design to make it your own. We hope you enjoy this bonus project! —Spin Off editorial team
