Most craft sites will sell plain chip board letters that can be painted and sprayed etc.

Must admit, I have seen letters in various craft shops but not as big as the ones she used in last night's programme.

We got rid of our sideboard when we moved house - perhaps we should have kept it.

Thanks for all the info ladies,the missing blanks for sites visited are---PANDURO,FRED ALDOUS and AMAZON,

will have a look at those you mentioned.
a friend asked me to make a letter for her daughters wall,got fed up waitng for the childs father to cut the R out.I have got a brilliant design. I have had the fabric and ribbons for about 4yrs
I have been babysitting the child since she was a few months old shes now 10.
her mum had seen a fabric letter on a tv series and asked me to make one well my design is luxurious.
so now i can get started on it.
thanks for your help.
best wishes wendy

Visited Southport this week and saw these types of letters (approx 6 inch tall and 1.5 inch deep) in a shop called The Attic in Wesley Street (?)
