I've found it difficult to transfer typography to fabric and stitch it neatly enough to be legible, so what I've been doing lately is printing the words on fabric and either leaving them as printing with surrounding decorative stitching, or stitching over the printed words.

Examples:

Stitched over ink on linen (traced on a window):



Stitched over printed fabric (the small words left unstitched):



Stitched around printed quote:



The problem with the printer fabric is it is a rather unattractive twill and I prefer to stitch on linen....  Tongue
