Keeping to the sewing theme. I designed this to look like letters that have been either weaved, stitched, or screen printed onto the fabric to create a patchwork quilt effect.
This seems to work best using a sack cloth effect.
Although it works equally as well as a wire fence/ chequered steel/ tread plate / diamond plate flooring effect. In an ideal world there would be more empty weaves at the top and bottom of each character. I would also prefer a different style Q.
Due to comp rules I have had to omit the lower case, and others, as this just squeezes into the 32 pixel height limit.
All comments and criticism appreciated.

I've started the Handmade Challenge saying: "I'm sure, in the coming days we will see many happy FS fonts better than this..." You all are greats! What immense happiness is to learn from all you, masters!

Wonderful technique, and the samples are crunchy goodness.

Awesome technique and samples too!

My understanding of the 32 pixel height limit is that no single character can be more than 32 pixels. So, for example, your upper G can go from 1 to 32 pixels high, while the lower g can go from -16 to 16 pixels.

@ Aphoria, Thanks mate.
Yeh I know but the 'j' messes it all up. So I figured I'd add the full lowercase after the comp.
I think the 32 height limit is just a tad too restrictive, to really get the best out of Fontstruct.

Damn...I forgot about the dot on the j! Well, I'll look forward to the lower case after the competition then.

Yeah the j messes up my font for the handmadecomp as well. Which is why I omitted the tittles on both i and j to make it just into 32px. :D

Nice subtle effect in this one.
