Alphabet Embroidery Transfer

My favourite way to embellish my sewing right now is embroidery. It is so simple and pleasing. I can happily stitch away during the evenings and in snatched moments during the day.


I have found myself stitching letters a lot, and particularly like one alphabet for this purpose.  I have recently used it to make a wall hanging for the kids’ bedroom.  The yellow fabric used is Maize Klona Cotton.


I have pulled together a free download for you to use as a transfer. There are upper and lower case letters, and some common punctuation. There are normal copies and reverse copies depending on how you transfer your images onto your cloth.


You can find the pdf download within our Articles section on the website, or go directly to it here

Let me know if you use the transfer for anything. I would love to see your creations... Happy stitching!

  1. This is super cute. I've been looking for letters to make my nephew a quiet book and these are perfect! I think I'll cut them out of felt, so it's not embroidery (although I may use them for that, too), but I think they'd make great templates for just about anything.

    Thanks for sharing!
