Hello again, readers! I'm Onel and this is my second newbie sewing post for A Nest for All Seasons (you can check out my first post here!) 
Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make alphabets from (scrap) fabrics and what you can do with them. Let's get started!

What you need:

-- Felt/fabric scraps

-- Cotton/polyfill

-- Needle & thread

-- Scissors

    Step 1: Draw your alphabets on your chosen fabric and cut them out. Make 2 for each letter.

    Step 2: Stitch the two layers of fabric together.

    Step 3: Give it some filling before closing it.

    Step 4: Close stitch and repeat the steps above for the other 25 alphabets!

    What can you use them for? You can use these fabric alphabets for kids learning ABCs and colors.

    Or you can use these as initials to personalize your belongings :)

    SO cute! And the best part, I can hand stitch them. Love!
    Thanks, Alex! I love hand stitch too. I have just started learning how to sew with the machine. It's definitely faster but sometimes machines are just scary :p

    I always mess up projects with machines cause I tend to multitask while sewing. Hehe. Good craft for kids too, I shall make my sister try it :)
    Hahaha, you're right, Aki! This can be a good sewing exercise for your sister. Not to mention that there are at least 26 of them! I rarely multitask while sewing but I easily get distracted, like really easily ;)

    Hi Lisa! It looks like Onel simply printed out a chunky font on her printer and used that as a guide -- see the "c" in the second picture? Hope that helps!
