Monogram of the Month – May

MayMono1-jpg

Embroidery Library’s Wild Side Alphabet a contemporary font with a bit of an edgy look. I love the nifty filigree background. Its scale sets the stage for the robust serif letter. At first glance, the letter appears to have four colors: the background scroll work, the letter’s fill, the satin accents on the curves and the shading run stitches at the letter’s edge. In reality, the fill and satin accents are the same thread color but they appear to be two shades because of the direction of the fill and the satins’ elements.

As the satin accents curve and taper along the edge of the letter, light plays off those curves and allows the satin stitches to ‘pop’ or separate from the neighboring flat, fill stitches. It’s a modern approach to a traditional design – lettering and displays excellent use of digitizing skills. MayMono2-jpg

Best as a single initial monogram, the font would need some tweaking if you’re determined to use it in a three initial monogram. Let’s take a look.

When arranged in a row to kern the letters as close as possible, the filigree elements overlap unpleasantly. Mono3

When separated to avoid that, the letters are too far apart. Mono4

A logical next step would be to eliminate the filigree on the flanking letters and resize the two outside letters. mono5

This 3-initial monogram works but I like the stand-alone, single-initial best. I think my favorite feature in the font is the shading run stitches – they give the appearance of wood carving – it’s a fun approach to a traditional embroidery application.

    If you are referring to the PE machine, it’s super easy to learn! I taught myself with little to no embroidery knowledge!

    Sebastian is my 2 year old grandson’s name. The lovely Wild Side S monogram would exactly suit a wall hanging I am planning for him.

    I think this would look great on a pillow by itself. It is my first initial in my name.

    I think it would look great to cover an art canvas for the wall or matted and placed in a picture frame.

    I like the stand alone monogram, and I would like to try it on an umbrella. Using a tone on tone or really wild bright neon pink on a black umbrella.

    I have been struggling to find a monogram to put on matching dresses for my two little girls aged 1 and 3 years. I would use it on the front of the dresses.

    This monogram set would look super on a wide-bimmed straw hat to wear in the sun this summer. I can see them done in white or deep pink on a soft pink sunhat.

    I think it would look great on a bag from your Handbags 2 Designer Knockoffs. I recently bought this book and need to buy fabric to try it out.

    I love this design and it’s variations. I would use it endlessly. First I would put it on an apron for my daughter and then re-size it for a matching apron for my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter. I would also use it to make an annual gift that I make for my 12 friends in my bridge group, possibly on casserole carriers! LOve it, love it, love it.

    I would use it on the back of a sweatshirt jacket. I don’t care for hoodies so I think the 3 letter monogram with the center filigree would be outstanding.

    I would use this beautiful monogram as a stand-alone stitched in basic white on burlap and then framed as a gorgeous wedding gift.

    The 3 letter monogram at the end of a scarf would be my choice, especially with the filagree. Pat

    I would use it on a white baseball cap. I would use a vivid color such as a neon or “hot” bright letter with a coordinating multicolor or metallic thread for the filigree.

    I think it could be used in many places. Southern-Linens has it as a possible font for people to choose for any kind of linen we create. I could see it on a pillow sham. It would be a bold monogram that would really catch your eye.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    I have a 6 needle and rarely need more than 6 needles to complete an applique! There are nice features of the 10 needle, but I don’t think you’ll hate a 6 needle if you don’t want to spend the extra $4,000. I’m content w/ my 6 needle!
