And So To Embroider bulletin 28b by the NDS

Leaflet 28b in the Needlework Development Scheme’s series “And So To Embroider” covers different ways to add lettering to your projects with embroidery. It includes:

  • A full cross stitch alphabet
  • Lettering in bands and corner motifs
  • Tent stitch monogram of a fancy letter M
  • Initials in Assisi work
  • Using thick and thin threads for interest
  • A sample of how to use a monogram within a larger design on felt. This design is on a sturdy felt and fabric bag that would be easy to draft at any size you choose from the photograph and description.
  • A coat hanger case with letter R worked in simple stitches
  • Lettering incorporated into a calligraphic design using double knot stitch
  • Shadow work initials
  • Padded satin stitch monograms
