Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
This is a departure from the typical monogramming convention, but for this design for a tote bag we wanted a name.
We started with the letter P from the Arts and Crafts 7 XL Monogram Set - large, straight and thin. We eliminated the decorative L-shaped bracket on the lower left, then went looking for a thin and simple style for the other two letters - A and T. For a bit of contrast, and to echo the curve of the flower stem, we chose the letters from the Brushwork Monogram Set 4, placing them on a baseline at the bottom.
The overall size is 7" (177mm) tall by 4 1/4" (106mm) 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.
