Today I'm posting the last of the numbers for my Shaganappi Alphabet.
You will notice that the top of the 5 is slightly inset. This is to keep it from looking top heavy.
Rather than try to cut the long narrow piece to size, I would sew it first and then trim it to fit.
This keeps them looking the same size as the 3, the 8 and the 0.
(Translation: The zero is oh upside down.)
When I design an alphabet I don't just do with the first thing that pops into my head. Well, actually I do. But then I change it. I play with it and try different things to see what works best.
I mention this because sometimes I make mistakes (Yes I know it's hard to believe) and yesterday I made one. I posted the wrong 2. So here is the correct one, I mean two.
