Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
We needed a large "fancy" monogram, but wanted to make it a bit more finished looking for a large framed wall piece.
The process started with the letter K from the Gothic 10 XL Monogram Set - which doesn't necessarily need an additional amount of fanciness for this project. Something complimentary, but simple, seemed a better choice. We chose the design called Year: 1937 from Monogram Flourishes Set 2. It's a satin stitch design with an open center section and curvy "hooks" at the end of two elements, which compliment the shapes in the K.
The letter is a bit taller than wide, so we rotated the embellishment design 90 degrees, and enlarged it appropriately in our embroidery software program.
The overall size is 15 7/8"(404mm) tall by 11"(279mm) wide.
NOTE: this requires a large commercial hoop, or a software program that splits designs. For something smaller, try the same letter from Gothic Monogram Set 10 (rather than Gothic 10 XL), and the same design from Monogram Flourishes Set 2, resized appropriately.
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.
