I love lettering, writing, calligraphy and I have for a long time.
Wait long enough and everything becomes trendy and it’s definitely been a nice time for lettering for the past few years.
I have made a few cushion cover designs of an exploded heart… using applique I affixed these parts of the hearts on the cushion covers and had them in my shop on Etsy. When the listing finished I thought I would try something else.
Whilst looking for Christmas gifts I found some nice mugs with letters on and somehow that lead me to giving ‘lettering’ themed pressies.
I decided on this one for a friend who has had a tough year. As the vintage fabrics are in these nice colours I decided to get scrabble letters in colour. I loved them but it took an age to sort them out and space out the different colours!
I then spent a morning trying to best fit the letters together …
This is it all done… The wooden frame I got to give it in was in a similar colour wood as the letters and I think it looked pretty attractive in the end.
