A set of Graphic Styles for Adobe Illustrator. Also included is a swatch with all the Patterns used. Graphic Styles are a great way to add a set of attributes to text or objects in one click.
So draw any shape you wish wether it be cute elephants or pretty birds or just text, then click on the style of your choice and instantly turn your shape into a gorgeous handstitched item. I have premade many styles as you can see in the preview but you also have the option of loading the pattern swatches and seeing what variations you can come up with via the fills in the appearance panel. The colors of the stitching is also easily changed via the stroke color in the appearance panel.
This set of styles was inspired by handmade textile crafts

Styles are designed with font size 120pt. This is a good starting point but really the size is up to you and depends on the look you want to achieve. Also turn up your document raster effect settings in the effect menu to get a better looking drop shadow and inner glow.
