Project Description

Mini Monogram

Choose a letter and decide on a lettering style. Print out your chosen letterform or sketch it by hand, then copy it onto graph paper to make your chart. Show some reference images if you used them, your sketches and your finished chart.

Choose your fabric and thread colour(s), then work your charted letter onto the fabric. Show how your work progresses with WIP shots. When you're done, mount the fabric neatly in its embroidery hoop, then show us your handiwork!

Here are some more examples I made:
