Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
Sometimes a simple monogram - particularly a single initial monogram - just needs a little extra "zip".
In this case we started with the letter C from the Arabesque 4 XL Monogram Set - A large flourishy satin stitch initial. It has graceful curves and a relaxed feel - but a simple flourish could add a bit of extra charm.
The two color ribbon design that is part of the Homestead Monogram Set 1 looked like the answer. We started by extracting that part from the overall design, which includes letters, by isolating the letter from the design in our embroidery software program and deleting it. Left with only the ribbon, the letter C was merged in. A slight increase in height for the letter and a bit of free rotating of the ribbon provided the opportunity to match up the elements.
The overall size is 7 1/2"(191mm) tall by 4 1/4"(108mm) wide.
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.
