Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter .........
The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.
The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".
This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.
This type face is based off of the word decorate and the adjective decorative. Within the development of this design I took inspiration from embellishment and a craft style of working which is how the cross stitch came to light. This type is lowercase, it is meant for smaller bodies text. It will work best in a 12 or 14pt body as if the type is too small it will be difficult to see the detail. Though CrossStitchNS is probably not suitable for headers it would be perfect for texts such as invitations. I hope you enjoy this font as much as I enjoyed making it. x
