I bought a second-hand book on decorative alphabets a while ago and the Art Deco lettering in particular caught my eye. I liked the ornateness of the letters, which obviously made me think immediately of embroidery stitches.
The design is more of a nod to this style of early 20th century lettering than a true Art Deco alphabet, as I’ve taken liberties that allowed me to incorporate different stitches to make the embroidery interesting and fun to do.
Deco Alphabet can be stitched as is – as an alphabet sampler – or split up into individual letters and used as monograms or to create names and words of your choosing.
The pattern is available in my online shop on Etsy and Craftsy as an instant download.
