I am looking for some input regarding fellow Cutie experiences.


I really want to purchase a nice small font set that includes Uppercase, Lowercase and numers to use on baby items. I want something pretty or elegant, easy to read, and probably contains a 1/2" size....multiple sizes preferably.

I have looked until I've confused myself and am now seeking everyone elses experiences...so if you can please share what you use and have good stitch-out experiences with, I'd LOVE to hear about your suggestons before I buy. Thanks, ~Rita

Why not download Embroidery Fonts Plus? It works rather like a word processor and you make the design exactly the size you want. Three fonts come with the software, but more are available at a reasonable cost.

Thank you Sue. That would be probably the perfect option...except that my old computer is almost full and I am afraid to add anymore software until I upgrade the RAM and memory....definately saved the link to my favorites as a must have! Thanks again -~Rita

Thank you...the Beauty font is pretty, slightly bigger than I think I want, but definately a contender. Thanks again, ~Rita

I just got back to my post and am so happy with your suggestions...I have checked out each lead. I am starting to think I am searching for the elusive rainbow. If I find a suitable font, they seem to be to big, only has caps, or some of the letters are not quite as suitable for a baby as I'm picturing.

I sure appreciate all suggestions as I journey through this...I have thousands of fonts at home and here I am looking for something else....CRAZY!

Multiple sizes in each set. I just bought a bunch, but have not had time to sit down with them.

I bought a couple of small ones from here also. I bought #228-mini block and #395-zantroke both have several sizes. I hope to be able to test stitch them out tomorrow to see which one works best for what I need. Good-luck on finding what you need.

Try Omas Place. She has lovely small fonts and designs for babies and children. They stitch beautifully also. A wonderful site.

I'm off to check out Oma's again since it's been awhile since I spent any time relly looking at her alphas. Thank yo for the suggestion, it is certainly appreciated. ~Rita

Ditto, Oma's the best for this. Also blastostitch has been giving freebie fonts that come in multiple sizes. The English font a month ago would work. It came in half inch.

Not sure how small you want, but here is one from Softdrink. It is free. It is on a page with TONS of free designs.

She has GORGEOUS designs. Everything I've stitched of hers has turned out lovely.

msfancyvip1 by msfancyvip1 19 Sep 2012

Thank you...I have looked at hers and she does have beautiful fonts...just a little bigger than I think I want for baby items. Catsnhorses is right, I have purchased a number of her sets and have been extremely satisfied every time. Thanks ladies!
