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

My font was originally based on the word 'curves',
this lead to looking at the fluid movements of strings through the process of stitching. My aim was to create a type face which explored the freedom of the process you undergo when sewing by hand.
