homo sweet homo sampler (+ free template!)

Homo Sweet Homo Sampler (+ free template!)

With the last of the wall art going up, the new apartment is finally beginning to feel like home - & since June is LGBTA Pride month, it's the perfect time to show off my favorite piece of wall art in the house.

Even though I like showing off my gay pride in my house, there are limitations. I'm not a huge fan of the rainbow color scheme. Not that there's anything wrong with rainbows. They're cheery, happy, bright - it's just hard to match all the colors of the rainbow to the rest of the decor in the apartment. That being said, I do want to make my house feel like my home. Plus I like subtle wit. The resulting combo? This little home blessing.

If you'd like to cozy up your dwelling with this homey sampler, you'll need:

  • Embroidery floss:
    • Black (lettering)
    • Purple (house roof)
    • Burnt umber (house)
    • Off white (door & window)
    • Green (grass)
  • Aida cloth
  • "Homo Sweet Homo" Template (click to download)

"Homo Sweet Homo" cross-stitch pattern

Print out the template & follow along with me! This sampler only took me about 20-30 minutes to complete, which is only like half of an Orange is the New Black episode. Unless you have no self control like me & power-watched the whole season already. Oops.
