Monogram Styles Used:
- Bamboo Monogram Set
- Rustic Monogram Set 3
To start this single initial monogram we wanted an "abstract" element to embellish one initial, so we chose the letter I from the Bamboo Monogram Set, then made a mirrored copy of the letter and placed the two designs with a space in the middle for a last name initial - M.
We used a website feature, called "View Each Letter of The Alphabet in All Available Fonts". There is a band of links, one for each letter, at the top of all of our website pages. Clicking on M displays all the Ms on one page,
We wanted something simple, and focused on the Rustic Monogram Set 3. The side embellishments weren't useful for this project, so we deleted them, with only the letter remaining. It needed to be made just a bit smaller to fit comfortably in the central space.
How we made these monograms
Embroidery software programs make it easy to delete elements, copy and paste elements from other designs, resize different aspects, and merge elements together into one new design. Each program is a bit different in how the Edit functions are managed. Once you have learned to use yours, creating new monograms from other monogram parts is creative and fun. Experiment with different arrangements and colors.
