Alphabet and Lettering Sewing Practice Sheets: Overview

Before you download, let's discuss what you're getting! We wanted this set of paper alphabet and letter practice sheets to have as many details as possible so that, as soon as you perfect your practice, you are ready to sew fabric. That's why there are four unique pages!

Sheet 1: This sheet offers the print alphabet with uppercase and lowercase letters in dots. Use the dots to plan your stitching or simply start from the top dot to the bottom for a clean one-length stitch. If needed, practice your straight lines down completely before starting.

Sheet 2: Once you've mastered straight stitching, it's time to move to curves. This page has the cursive alphabet with uppercase and lowercase letters to challenge your skills for sewing curved letters.

Sheet 3: If you want to get into cross-stitch, then you need this sewing practice sheet! It shows an uppercase alphabet complete with the Xs to master cross-stitch sewing.

Sheet 4: The last sheet is a plain lined page that will allow you to practice names, words, or anything else you need to practice to improve your hand sewing skills.

You can see a preview of all the sheets right below.

How to Print the PDFs

Printing is easy for these PDFs! If you're not familiar with printing PDFs, here's the step-by-step, along with a few tips.

  1. Click the red button in the next section that says, "Click to Download the Alphabet and Lettering Worksheets!" P.S. Make sure you know the location of your download.
  2. Find and open the PDF.
     
  3. Click the "Print File" button, choose the printer, choose how many copies you want, make any additional adjustments needed for personal preference, and click the "Print" button.
     
  4. Thread your needle, grab your scissors, and start practicing.
Tips:
  -  If you want to print only one or a few of the sheets, adjust your printer settings. Under "Pages to Print" you will want to select "Pages" and put the specific page number(s) you want to print.

  -  Using a slightly thicker paper type will help the stability of these practice sheets. Cardstock or resume paper are both great choices. Keep in mind the thickness that your printer can handle.

  -  The default printer settings do not need to be adjusted unless desired. It should print the same in "Fit" or "Actual Size".

  -  No need to use color inks for this! Print in grayscale to save ink.

  -   For larger letters, adjust the "Custom Scale" size. Note that doing this may leave some cut off.

  -   Alternatively, for larger designs, feel free to use a cropping tool to cut out certain letters/lines and then print separately and at the size you want.
