Daisy chain monograms in black and white

Fresh and modern, Daisy Chain Monograms are for stitching your stamp on anything fabric, from personalised notebook covers to hand-crafted wedding favours. The pattern features four variations of a striking but simple alphabet incorporating different and unusual chain stitches, including lazy daisies if you were wondering how the name came about. 

I've always wanted fabric-covered sketchbooks with an embroidered element and have gone for contemporary black and white. The way I've constructed the notebook covers creates a fabric pocket inside each of the front and back covers for storing ideas scribbled on to slips of paper and small inspirational items such as beautiful packaging, thread and even leaves, grasses and flowers. Pastels or bright thread colours would give the monograms a different feel for different personalities and/or occasions.

Weddings kept popping into my head while I was embroidering the monograms. But really, they're suitable for tea towels, cloth napkins, fabric-covered boxes, Christmas tree decorations and stockings... anything you'd like to personalise. Great for gifting handmade.

They're easy to transfer on to fabric and quick to embroider, in stark contrast to traditional monograms that require hours of painstaking satin stitch. Hopefully this is a happy alternative.

The pattern includes step-by-step photographic instructions on how to make the notebook covers - from measuring your notebook to creating a sewing pattern to embellishing it with the embroidered monogram. It's available as a digital download from my Etsy and Craftsy shops.
