Embroidered Alphabet

Click on the image above to open the photo gallery.

For this project I used tools in the Maker Hub and the help of Don Undeen to do an in depth study of the Helvetica typeface, embroidering uppercase letters into an accordion-style book. The book is comprised of different embroidery styles, utilizing mixed media including embroidery floss and water color. My project combines the digital and the physical by using a modern font with a centuries-old craft.
