This monogram style is digitized from artwork from 1933. The elegant vertical letters are done in satin stitch, with wider areas that are filled in with a manual seed stitch - each stitch placed individually by hand. The effect of this interesting texture is reminiscent of the karakul lamb's coat - from a breed of sheep native to the deserts of Central Asia. This "fur", referred to as Persian Lamb, has a tight curly nature - durable, valuable, and used for high-fashion fur coats and collars in the 1930s and 40s.
This unusual monogram style is digitized from artwork from 1934. The satin stitch oval, with interior thorn shapes, is joined with graceful, theatrical letters. A matching alphabet style occupies the upper space - the combination of the two creates a vertical monogram that evokes classic pre-war style and elegance. The monogram may be sewn all in one color, and the letters can be used alone, without the background shape.
Digitized from artwork from 1937, this monogram set combines thin vertical satin stitch letters with a festive border that is basically geometric, but with a bit of extra flare in the longest brackets - knobs at the ends. The brackets can be sewn in two colors as shown, with contrasting letter color, or everything can be sewn in one tone-on-tone color. Great for napkins.
Artwork from the early 1900s is the basis for this style. Digitized in satin stitch with thin, graceful, curling elements, this monogram style can be used to create a three-letter monogram by staggering the placement of the flanking letters - a two-letter monogram is just as attractive. A delicate style for linens and napkins.
