Working with alphabets is all about creativity. You can choose what you want to say and then choose how it looks! With these 15 illustrated cross stitch alphabets by Linda Gillum of Kooler Design Studio, you can add sweet touches to the nursery, and the playful characters will help the alphabet come to life for a small child. Guidelines are included to help in the creative process, from choosing your design and charting it (with tips for spacing between letters and rows, arranging it, and fitting it to a specific stitching area) to stitching your design (figuring the size to cut your fabric and using the right number of floss strands). General cross stitch instructions include step-by-step diagrams for Cross Stitches, Quarter Stitches, Backstitch, and French Knots.
