Gorgeous, isn't it? This is a reproduction of a cross-stitch pattern from the French series of embroidery books "Maison Sajou". It dates to around the turn of the 20th century. After seeing such a beautiful, ornate pattern, I just had to convert this one to a font, a process that took several months.
The design is made of intricate flower buds, stems, leaves, and check patterns. The design of the letters is similar throughout the pattern, however no two letters have exactly the same layout (for example, flower buds are facing a slightly different angle). Each letter is intertwined with a branch that winds its way up the letter, and features representations of leaflets and berries.
The 'I' and 'W' were not present in the original design. 'J' doubles as 'I' and 'W' is a rotated 'M'. While I would love to make up numerals based on the current letters, it would be a daunting task as each letter is about a 100x100 size grid. Anyone is welcome to clone this font and give it a shot.
This pattern was found on http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/2010/11/sajou-no-601.html . There are lots of Sajou and other embroidery patterns there.

This is a recreation of a cross-stitch pattern from the French series of embroidery books "Maison Sajou". It dates to around the turn of the 20th century. Each letter features a three-pronged leaf and curly serifs.
The 'I' and 'W' were not present in the original design so I modified them based on 'J' and 'M'. The pattern was found on http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/2010/05/sajou-no-656.html

A recreation of a cross stitch pattern I found on Pintrest and originally from the Hungarian cross stitch site qtp.hu.
Thanks to elmoyenique who designed the "I" and "Y" glyphs, which were not present in the original.

A very simple font designed to be used by children and anybody who wants a monogram on fabric or knitteds without spending too much time embroidering it.
It was designed to fit a rectangle of 12 squares wide x 17 squares high.

Many "Dot-Matrix" fonts out there, but I'd never seen one based on a diagonal grid though, so here's a shot at it.
