Friends Pivot Couch Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvas

There is so much you can do with this canvas between the different stitches and great finishing options. I tried out some new fancy stitches on my own canvas and it really brought the couch to life!!

I think I'd like to finish this as a couch pillow (because, why not?) but it is almost pretty enough to frame! This is one of the bigger pieces we have in the shop. It uses a lot of thread, so that's why you may notice the kit price is a little higher than the others. You get four full skeins plus a ton more extra thread. I have to admit, I think I found the perfect Vineyard Silk thread to match the famous couch.
