Gorgeous, isn't it? This is a reproduction of a cross-stitch pattern from the French series of embroidery books "Maison Sajou". It dates to around the turn of the 20th century. After seeing such a beautiful, ornate pattern, I just had to convert this one to a font, a process that took several months.
The design is made of intricate flower buds, stems, leaves, and check patterns. The design of the letters is similar throughout the pattern, however no two letters have exactly the same layout (for example, flower buds are facing a slightly different angle). Each letter is intertwined with a branch that winds its way up the letter, and features representations of leaflets and berries.
The 'I' and 'W' were not present in the original design. 'J' doubles as 'I' and 'W' is a rotated 'M'. While I would love to make up numerals based on the current letters, it would be a daunting task as each letter is about a 100x100 size grid. Anyone is welcome to clone this font and give it a shot.
This pattern was found on http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/2010/11/sajou-no-601.html . There are lots of Sajou and other embroidery patterns there.

Freely inspired by dcyzz's 'Bit Bots' FontStruction, but this time clear and not pixel. This took some time, it may not be that great, but still, I hope you'll like it.
WOW! Good in pixel size too. The K looks a bit shady, but that's fine.

My exercise in fontmaking, but a decent font nevertheless I think. Not entirely finiched as I plan to add even more signs.

My typeface was inspired by the idea of squishy warm candle wax. I melted wax onto alphabet fridge magnets then copied them into Frontstruct. This was a very lengthy process which too weeks to create, however I am happy with the final design.

TIP: If you are working with large letters, having your monitor in portrait mode gives you much more vertical working area. :)

This font is a template. Clone it, make it beautiful, and share it. Don't just tweak it, make it your own. I'm sure you can think of something. There are a few circles floating around on spare characters in case you need them. Be warned, it has more squares per glyph than I've ever seen in a fontstruction, so there could be downloading troubles. Enjoy!This is a clone
