Home Sweet Home is a lovely tapestry kit to stitch for yourself or to give as a handmade gift to friends or family members celebrating moving into a new house. With its central house, its hearts and flowers border, lucky horse shoe and teapot and cups, the design is full of familiar and welcoming imagery. Once stitched, you can frame your tapestry as a picture or use it as the centre of a larger cushion.
As it’s not too big, Home Sweet Home will find a space in even in the most bijou residence!

Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but does help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.
For Home Sweet Home, we recommend either a CF189 frame, or choose a CF219 or CF249 frame if you might stitch something larger in the future. A 12″ frame will be a bit of a squeeze.
Printed canvas area: 7″ x 7″ (18cm x 18cm)
