Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
For this single initial monogram we started with the letter S from the Lattice 1 XL Monogram Set - then proceeded by thinking about taking elements away. We wondered what this graceful initial would look like without the lattice elements.
The remaining letter shape now had two large gaps that needed to be filled with something, so we went looking for flowers - compatible, but not matching.
We found the first one - part of the initial B from Nuptial Monogram Set 2 (the flower design is the same in each letter so any letter would do). We deleted everything but one flower, then merged the remaining flower with the letter S and rotated it a bit so that it fit comfortably in the available space.
We went looking for another flower, or maybe a flower motif, and found a promising one in Monogram Flourishes 3. There is a ribbon and a three flower garland in the design called Year 1956. It goes well with the flow of the lower part of the S, and only needed a bit of rotating for a comfortable fit.
The overall size is 7" (177mm) tall by 4 5/7" (117mm) 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.
