Stitch detail for the mini line alphabet

This alphabet is stitched on 18-count Aida over two threads. I used DMC floss:

  • 2 strands for backstitches
  • 2 strands for French knots


Line letters, standard/straight

Characters Included:

  • Upper Case Letters
  • Lower Case Letters
  • Numbers
  • Punctuation


  • The upper case letters are 2 stitches high.
  • The lower case letters without ascenders or descenders (ex: a, c, o) are 1 stitch high.
  • The lower case letters with only ascenders (ex: b, d, h) or only descenders (ex: g, p, y) are 2 stitches high.
  • The lower case "j", with a descender and a dot above, is 3 stitches high.


They are also perfect for text in the Baby Hearts.
