The key to success with cross stitch letters is all in the spaces! If you’re combining several letters into one word you’ll want to make sure it looks right by considering the spacing between each letter, word, and even rows or columns of words. It’s about being consistent.
Alphabet sets will usually be presented as individual charts in alphabetical order, or even combined into one large chart, so it’s a good idea to plot your chosen words before you start stitching. The backstitch alphabet is often presented in a way that suggests the best visual balance as well, such as how many stitches have a gap to leave between letters or the way they might connect.

To get the spacing right, you’ll only need graph paper (or squaring) and a pencil. Using the letter charts you can then draw a picture of your chosen words to stitch onto the paper, creating a brand new chart to stitch from.
By doing this, you ensure that all the letters line up along the same base line with each other. You should also leave the same number of spaces between each letter, word or line of words for a consistent finish. If your chosen letter style is intended to be interlocking, make sure each joint fits their adjacent letter as well. Don’t be afraid to make adjustments to your chart design either – if something doesn’t look quite right or letters don’t work with the suggested joins or spacing, just tweak it until you’re happy with the way it seems.
This is easier to do with the backstitch alphabet, but it’s a good idea to sketch larger cross stitch letters in the same way. It helps prevent costly spelling mistakes or spacing errors that will take longer to unselect later.
Buy pads of graph paper or squares from stationery stores, or you can even get special cross-stitch graph paper notebooks to fill with all your own charts and patterns. With pages of 14 count grids (14 stitches per inch) this is the simplest method of transferring your sketches to stitchable charts on 14 or 28 count fabrics.

Some stitchers like to do this for a flourish by including the completion date as well.
