How to draw BANDOLA

Zentangle pattern: Bandola. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.The unusual 3D tangle pattern, Bandola, was created by CZT® Sadelle Wiltshire, one of my classmates at CZT#7. Sadelle is from Putney, Vermont, and teaches classes in the SE Vermont and SW New Hampshire area so if you’re going to be in the area, check her blog for her class schedule.

In addition to being a Certified Zentangle® Teacher, Sadelle is also a “textile jewelry artist, knitter, spinner, weaver and fiber arts teacher & facilitator, fiber retreat planner.

Bandola is Sadelle’s first tangle pattern on the site. She explains that it came about when she was “browsing some fabric samples recently,  a pattern similar to this caught my eye…  it had to be made into a tangle! I call it ‘Bandola’,  after finding a pen holder / bandolier with a similar pattern.

This is one of those tangles that really requires your concentration – and the results are worth it. Very cool effect! Bandola starts out with a framework like CZT Sandy Bartholomew’s Coop tangle from her book, Yoga for Your Brain. If you are new to Zentangle®, you will want to start out with Sandy’s Totally Tangled before “graduating” to the more challenging Yoga for Your Brain.

Sadelle illustrates the step-by-step instructions and gives some tips on how to draw Bandola here.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
