This monogram style is digitized from artwork from the 1930s. It consists of a 5 color decorative crest design, done in satin stitch with manually digitized fills for the two stylized flowers. The crest surrounds satin stitch letters that have different versions for left and right for use in two-letter monograms. The letters can be used without the crest.
The artwork for this monogram style is late 19th Century - more than 100 years old ! A delicate vine motif creates the mood, and the elaborate letters complete it. The satin stitch letters can be used alone by skipping the first color.
This monogram style is digitized from 1940s artwork. The large letters are done as outlines in satin stitch with open centers between border elements, and each letter sits in the center with a two color rectangular satin stitch frame surrounding it. The smaller letters are simpler in style, and are intended for use in creating a three letter monogram by merging the appropriate letter on the left and right.
In addition to the three-letter combination shown, there are a multitude of possibilities: Want a single initial with frame? (use only the large letter) Want everything as a single color? (use the same thread for all three design colors). Want only the larger open letter without the frame? (skip color 1 and color 2 on your machine.) Want the larger open letter with flanking letters, but no frame? (merge the flanking letters on either side, then delete colors 1 and 2 in your software). You get the idea - simple manipulations create very different visual results.
The artwork for this monogram style is from a French publication for hand embroiderers from 1910. A leaf and vine motif surrounds the letters, accented with circular dots between the upper and lower garland sections. All the elements, including the very thin details are digitized in satin stitch.
We have done this monogram style in three colors, but a single color monogram is easily sewn by using only one thread color. The color changes also make it easy to separate the design into parts - the letters can be used alone by skipping over the border design.
