Needlework has been absolutely everywhere for the past few years, from Sublime Stitching's popular kits to Jonathan Adler's pillows to creative wall art. Thankfully, this surge in popularity means that patterns have become pretty stylish. Here are 5 kits and patterns to stitch for your own abode or to make and give as holiday gifts. Needlework looks just as wonderful displayed on bookshelves and small shelves as it does on walls. You can also choose a pillow sham to pop against an iconic chair like the Eames rocker.
