You may remember the fabric letters I made as part of the Typography Challenge. I've made some more.
My inspiration came from a rag quilt letters tutorial, by Jessica from Happy Together. Jessica's letters are made with batting and are quilted. I used Jessica's free pattern for the letters, but I made mine slightly differently.
Pin the letters to fabric and felt. If you use felt as a backing, read the care instructions, as many types can't be washed or put in the dryer. I've used acrylic felt which is not suitable for either washing or putting in the dryer.
Being careful to stay away from the pins, sew around the letters. Don't worry if you accidentally sew parts of the paper, as you can tear it away when finished.
Cut close to the stitching. I left my Typography Challenge letters like this, but they are fraying.
Zig zag the edges and you are done.
Here are my fabric letters finished... all pinks and blues.
Four sets of letters for four little people, each set containing the letters of their name.
