Hot Iron Transfer Patterns were first made in 1879, and continued to be popular with hand embroiderers until the mid-1950s. A vast array of subject matter was covered, and the artwork was designed to be transferred as line art to fabric. These monogram designs were available in the 1930s. We have digitized separate colors for each portion of the design, but this would also looks stunning done white-on-white for a wedding gift. The letters are raised satin stitch, and the display border with decorative bow is done in satin stitch, accented with French knots.
This style is featured in A Table of Gold by Susan Schrempf, Designs in Machine Embroidery magazine, January/Fenruary 2007.
This monogram style is derived from a 1940s vintage monogrammed hankie in our Monogram Museum collection. The fluid satin stitch letters are framed by a three color oval border - a stylized satin stitch vine motif with a twist effect, along with leaves and four delicate satin stitch flowers with open centers. This style looks wonderful sewn all in one color, tone-on-tone. The letters can be used alone by skipping the border, which sews first.
This monogram style was inspired by a vintage embroidered monogram from our extensive collection. The original is all one color - white-on-white - and this style will look elegant sewn that way. In order to add some additional design flexibility we have digitized color breaks for the different elements of the garland so that a complex palette of spring colors can be used. All of the elements are satin stitch. As with others of this type, you can sew the garland alone by stopping before the initial is sewn, or sew just the initial alone by skipping past the colors in the garland.
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.
