Easy-to-Make Personalized Cross Stitch Alphabet Sewing
We sometimes want to add names, dates, and other information on our cross stitch projects. So,
we use templates for letters that are available online or in the cross stitch kits that we purchase. However, some
of these letters are available in fonts that don't suit our taste. Either they are too boring or they simply don't
fit our sewing projects. The unavailability of our desired fonts becomes our dilemma.
Don't lose hope since there is an answer to this dilemma. We could simply make templates for Cross Stitch
Alphabets by using our own handwriting. We could now do without the boring templates available online or in the
cross stitch kits. If you want to know how, here's how you should do them.
First, you need to grab some graph paper. However, you need to know which type of graph paper will be suitable
for your sewing project. If you're thinking of making a large monogram, graph papers with + inch squares would be
perfect. However, smaller squares are used for patterns that have smaller fonts and have more refined details.
After picking out the appropriate type of graph paper, you could now start imagining what font or font style you
would like to place in your project. Will it be italicized? Will it be in boldface? Or both italicized and
boldfaced? After finally deciding on how your alphabets should look like in your project, you could now start
drawing the letter like the letter B. Make sure that you draw in between the horizontal lines. If you intend to
make a letter that are 6 spaces tall, then draw within those lines.
The next thing you should do is retrace the letters. In doing this, you should use vertical lines. You may also
go beyond the graph line intersections in order to complete your desired letter. Now you can finish the date,
quote, or alphabet using the method described above. Before actually using this cross stitch pattern on your
project, you need to practice in order to discover other ways of making interesting letters and numbers.
Having boring or unsuitable alphabet templates is no excuse for being unable to make your desired outcome of the
sewing project. You can always make your own cross stitch alphabet template by using these simple steps. So, start
sketching your desired font and style and make your project happen.
