If you love cross stitch, needlepoint or modern stitchery, then Stitch Alphabets & Numbers is the book for you! Literally jam-packed with charts, there are so many different designs to try that you may struggle to choose your favourite…
Stitch personalised gifts or decorate your home with unique cushions and pictures in Felicity Hall‘s trademark contemporary style! There are over 100 letters and numbers, which can be worked in cross stitch with embroidery thread or in needlepoint on canvas using thicker tapestry wool. You can vary the size of your design by working with different materials, so there are so many opportunities to customise your projects and make something really personal to you!
Choose from six fonts, including woodblock, vintage, floral, screen-print, and the ever-popular circus style. You can change the colours, mix-and-match the styles, and combine different letters and numbers to make words, names, initials and dates.
If you’re new to needlecraft, there are, of course, basic techniques included in the book, as well as instructions for making up a number of projects. Learn how to frame your design in a hoop or make a stretch canvas, create 3D blocks or a stylish cushion decorated with piping or trims! You can use these charts to create so many different types of projects, but we love the classic style of the simple framed monogram pictures.
The charts are full colour and printed at a workable scale, but Felicity recommends that you photocopy them so that you can mark off stitches as you complete them. They all have colour chart keys for suggested DMC stranded cottons, and there’s a handy conversion table at the back of the book if you’d like to use other threads or yarns.
