Synopses & Reviews
Personalization or monograming has been around for thousands of years. It appears on currency, insignias, and clothing, and it has been used on embroideries for centuries. From linens and clothing to baby items and household goods, putting ones initial or initials on something imparts a unique classic style. Add a single letter for personalization or a traditional three-letter monogram to items like hand towels, photo albums, or pillows. Personalize shirts, scarves, bookmarks, or tote bags. This book features nine alphabets that are perfect for adding a personal touch to nearly anything. The alphabets are divided into three categories: Clean & Classic, Elegant & Exquisite, and Fun & Funky, each of which features three alphabets with letters that can be easily combined to create names or words. The colors can be altered and the fabrics changed to create projects that are functional, beautiful, and one of a kind. The alphabets here range from simple, clean lines to fanciful letters made of flowers. There are classic bordered letters and whimsical letters made with bright colors. The finishing on every project is simple, with easy-to-follow instructions addressed step by step in the Finishing chapter. Your creations will be treasured for years to come. We hope that you enjoy the designs and unique finishing ideas in this book and will decorate your stitching with Lovely Letters.
