Font Crafts: A Font-a-liscious Journey Through Some of my Fave How-to Projects


The ever crafty Alexa Westerfield AKA Swelldesigner has started a brand spankin’ new website called Font Crafts. If it involves fonts and is crafty she is showcasing it, making it or writing about it. I never realized how fonts and crafts correlated until I took a peeksie through her site. There are also interviews with crafters like Heather Mann of Dollar Store Crafts, a resource guide helping you find spiffy free fonts, how-to videos and lot’s more. I suddenly started realizing the ways I had done my own font crafting through the years. Wanna take a little stroll down memory lane with me?


Making monogrammed sweaters is one of many fashionable ways to wear fonts.


Years ago when I still produced the Stitch fashion show we did a display in the Beauty Bar window which showcased a big font-a-liscious necklace I made.


The Personalized Placemats I made used a font I like to call “Jennifer Perkins” since it is my handwriting. It will be available for download soon. Ok not really.


Baby Blocks have a very iconic font and can be used for all kinds of crafty goodness.


One of my very favorite fonts is on my Naughty Secretary Club T-shirts. I made one of the T-shirts into a spiffy apron once using the T-shirt necklace from my book The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry.


Chipboard letters in the scrapbooking aisle have all kinds of crafty possibilities and come in oodles of different fonts.


When pregnant with Tallulah I had a onesie making baby shower, cute fonts abound.
