Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
This combination is for a single initial monogram - letter F - with an Asian theme, the kind of design that would have been very popular in Paris in the 1920s and 30s. We wanted to create something that had an open minded international quality.
The letter F comes from our Chinois Monogram Set. The border comes from our Oval Monogram Set 3. We deleted the letters from Oval 3 in our software, added color changes that would allow the french knot elements to be a separate color, then experimented with rotating the border and embellishments until the relationship of border to vertical letter matched up visually.
This monogram could be used for many things - linen hand towels, table napkins, a handkerchief - lots of possibilities.
The overall size is 3" (76mm) tall by 3 1/4" (82mm) wide.
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.
