Embroidered monograms, classic and contemporary

Monograms are a great way of personalising your projects, whether to create beautiful monogrammed bed linen or some fun hoop art for a friend – and I have two new sets of monograms for you to embroider.

Circular Monograms is made up of four alphabets that are, in line with the name, circular in shape. They range from fairly quick to more involved, giving you the option of how much time you want to spend on them. And there's an interesting stitch idea or two for you to try out. The pattern is available on Etsy and Craftsy, and includes all four alphabets in full.

The other pattern I have for you is a modern take on more traditional monograms.

Classic Monograms has more elaborate lettering, with flourishes and curlicues. But the overall feel is contemporary and different embellishments create three different alphabets for you to choose from, depending on how much time you want to spend embroidering. 

The pattern includes two different options when it comes to colour – green and white with touches of deep red, orange and yellow or shades of grey for a more contemporary look. It's available from Etsy and Craftsy.
