This is my hand illustrated version of a traditional Alphabet embroidery sampler.

I have admired traditional alphabet sampler since a young girl, both in books and museums and I am lucky to have several beautifully stitched samplers here in my own collection at home, in East London, some of which are dating back to 1800.

My hand drawn lettering and text is something that I am passionate about and use daily when drawing with my ink pen in my own sketch books and also when drawing with my needle onto cloth, so from this the 'ABC Sampler' has evolved.

The design features a slightly wobbly alphabet housed within a border of fine cross stitches, there are two swans nurturing a sacred heart at the bottom and the whole piece is finished with a large signature bow.

Once I had screen printed my first alphabet template sample template onto a fine natural cotton I enjoyed the months ahead working on and into it, using mainly my five favourite shades of DMC embroidery floss combined with my own vintage threads and fabric scraps from my own collection.

The ABC template measures 20 cm x 28 cm and my version completed as shown here with the patchwork border measures 27 cm x 43 cm.

Please feel free to make your border as wide as you like and the final sampler as big as you like.

My version is just as guidance so feel free to enjoy and take your own approach to this kit.

Each kit comes with full paper instructions to guide you through the process.

Each kit contains the following items:

x 1 hand printed ABC embroidery template 20 cm x 28 cm
x 5 skeins of DMC embroidery floss in my favourite colours
A packet of assorted fabric scraps
A simple cotton base fabric to back your template on while stitching
A full paper printed colour instructions booklet
An A5 postcard of my favourite stitch techniques for you to follow

Enjoy the adventure and happy stitching x
