Handwriting Training In My Filofax

I wasn't planning on doing a post about this as I didn't think people would be very interested, but I seem to have been proven wrong! Several people have requested to see my handwriting paper to help me train to write neater and in different styles. I only did this recently but it's already proving to be a big help as I can easily flick to the page when I feel my handwriting skills are slipping and I need a reminder in how I want to write >.<

So the first writing is called DigitalLove and it was from DaFont (this is a wonderful website filled with thousands of free fonts of all designs). I loved the simplicity of the font, the upper and lower case is the same design which was very handy as I didn't have to write two alphabets down.

The second writing is called TakeMeAwayBabe and is also from DaFont (FYI: I get all my fonts from here). Again this font is very simple, with the upper and lower cases are the same. I tend to mix both designs of DigitalLove and TakeMeAwayBabe together in order to create more of a personal handwriting style.

The third writing is called KG Eyes Wide Open and is also from DaFont. I wanted to find a neat and easy to read elegant handwriting which I could use as my 'fancy' handwriting (thank you notes etc).

The fourth and fifth writings are from a lovely lady called Suusi (WinterVictorian/Quiet Feather). She has one of the most beautiful, interesting, and unique handwriting styles I have ever seen! I am lucky enough to be her penpal and receive beautifully written letters from her. She posted a photo of her handwriting on Instagram which showed both her upper and lower case alphabet, and that is where I copied it from and got the inspiration. I mainly write my m's the same as her, but I still cannot master the e and s!!

This is the IG photo of Suusi's handwriting in both upper and lower case
So, do you use anything similar to help you practice your handwriting? It's a great and easy tool to help you practice and improve :)


  1. Thanks for sharing! I need this.
    I'm going to also use this site for our homeschool.

  2. Wow! What a great idea! and I LOOOVe Suusi's handwriting! I follow her on Instagram too! I seriously drool over it :D

  3. Ooh, I haven't practised handwriting since primary school! This seems like a cool idea though - I love dafont. I use it a lot when working with photoshop and indesign.

  4. Love this!!! I do this all the time! 👍 I try to tell others how but I think it doesn't make sense?

    And thank you! My handwriting is mainly a lefty style...but a hint I make my s and e from the bottom up! It may seem strange but it's how I make them! 😊
