Probably the most challenging design yet from Long Dog Samplers. Bagatelle has been inspired by the whitework samplers - sometimes called reticella samplers - which achieved their peak of popularity during the reign of the English sovereign, Charles 1 (1625 - 1649). Originally the samplers would have measured from 6 inches to 12 inches wide by up to a yard deep ( approx 15cm to 31cm by 92cm) and featured a variety of stitches and techniques including detached buttonholes, drawn thread, cut work, needle lace and hollie point. Often the patterns and motifs would have been designs which could be incorporated into clothing such as sleeve frills, collars, cuffs and even christening gowns. Vellum or net was often used as a backing support. Bagatelle recreates the appearance of this work using only cross-stitch and back stitch
