Simply Stitched Alphabet
Lettering and project by Nancy Burke
Draw your guidelines where you would like the top and bottom of each letter to be. Be sure to leave adequate space at the beginning and end of your sentiment or title, as well as above and below each guideline.
1. Using a pencil, lightly draw basic letters a bit smaller than you would like your finished letters to appear. It is important to do this as lightly as possible, because these original letters will be erased later.
2. With a pencil, lightly outline each letter evenly on all sides, top and bottom.
3. Trace over outline with a pen or marker, and erase original letter lines.
4. Using a fine-point pen, add “stitching” by drawing short, evenly spaced dashed lines just inside letter outline. Referring to full alphabet or as desired, use regular or watercolor pencils to shade inside of each letter. ●
