Free Cross Stitch Font

Free Cross Stitch Font

Example of the free cross stitch font

I found a cross stitch font! You can download the font and use it in your craft, stitching and embroidery projects. If you are a stitcher who also does paper crafts such as making making birthday or seasonal cards, home made gift wrap, or items such as tags, journal cards, quotes or general ephemera for junk journalling I am sure you would find plenty of uses for this cross stitch font. Digital scrap booking and digital journaling are two more places where this font will come in handy.

Also don’t forget that you can print on fabric with an ink jet printer. That means using this cross stitch font, you can make your own project labels, pages for fabric books, quotes and text for items such as stitched fabric rolls or use it on items like fabric postcards. You could this font anywhere you need a bit of text in a project. Just print your words out on fabric and bingo you have an interesting personal touch to your work. If you need a tutorial on how to use your ink jet printer to print on fabric check out the Graphics Fairy tutorial round up here. You could also actually cross stitch over the print out.

You can find the Costura cross stitch font here. I checked the copyright and you can use it legally in both your personal projects and for commercial purposes. The Costura font is hosted at Font Squirrel. If you have not encountered Font Squirrel before and you like unusual fonts you will enjoy exploring it. Make a cup of your favourite beverage before starting to explore as it can be a bit of rabbit hole. If you need help with installing fonts there is this guide here.

I could not resist sharing with my regular readers. I hope you enjoy it!

Thread Twisties!


Experimenting with different threads can be expensive. You would normally have to buy a whole skein of each type of thread. So I have made up my thread twisties which are a combination of different threads to use in creative hand embroidery. These enable you to try out stitching with something other than stranded cotton. For the price of just a few skeins, you can experiment with a bundle of threads of luscious colours and many different textures.

These are creative embroiders threads. With them, I hope to encourage you to experiment. Each Twistie is a thread bundle containing silk, cotton, rayon, and wool. Threads range from extra fine (the same thickness as 1 strand of embroidery floss) to chunky couchable textured yarns. All threads have a soft and manageable drape so twisting them around a needle makes experimental hand embroidery an interesting journey rather than a battle.  Many are hand-dyed by me. And they are all threads I use. You may find a similar thread twist but no two are identical.

You will find my thread twisties in the Pintangle shop here.
