Stitch your own handwriting

Have you ever tried to stitch your own hand writing? Seems to me it's the perfect way to add a personal touch to your piece. Dana of Water Penny has a tutorial on her blog on how to transfer your handwriting to fabric.

And if you are a fan of stitched lettering, quotes, alphabet samplers etc. be sure to check out my Stitched Lettering group on Flickr!


  1. Great post- I love incorporating text into textiles and have printed my Nan's handwriting onto fabric, but haven't yet tried to stitch it

  2. Fun idea! How cute would it be to stitch your kids' handwriting too? My son can't write yet but I may have to try it when he can!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I also think it would be a great way to preserve love letters and kids drawings.
