MONOGRAM EVERYTHING!

“My rule is...if it's not moving...MONOGRAM it”!

As an Embroiderer...I love this quote from the famous Reese Witherspoon...

but seriously...it describes me PERFECTLY!

No matter where I go...

I am constantly looking for the possibilities of items that can be Monogrammed or Appliqued in some way!

Can I get an Amen?

Let's get going...

I started off with a Super Soft Flannel Shirt, I found at my local Costco store...

if you have never shopped the isles of clothing, towels and bedding in this store...

be sure you do...

the monogramming possibilities are endless there!

This particular Flannel Shirt came in a great variety of colors...

and I may or may not have grabbed one of each. 

But really...

there are Super Cute Monograms and Fonts out there and I simply MUST use them ALL!

Who's with ME?

I'm gonna be gutsy today and place my Monogram on the bottom right corner of my flannel shirt,

and since flannel shirts tend to be a button down styled garment...

it is so darn easy to load this onto ANY machine!

I began by playing around in my Embrilliance Software with the many fonts and monograms

to see what struck my fancy, for this particular shirt. 

I settled on the 3” Sofia Font and chose to be BOLD and use only my First and Last initial. 

I am one of those people with the letter “I” for my middle initial and I don't necessarily LOVE what that looks like...

but it certainly does NOT keep me from finding new ways to...

MONOGRAM EVERYTHING!

Here she goes...

I have loaded the bottom corner of my shirt onto my 5X7 Fast Frame...

using a Sticky Stabilizer and a piece of NO Show Mesh Fused to the backside.

I also threw a piece of WSS on top before I hit start...

Because...

it's what I do!

My two letter Monogram is about 4.75” wide X 4.5” tall...

with only 5,332 stitches in it...but WOW...she packs a PUNCH!

This particular font is BOLD and using white thread made it pop right off the flannel shirt. 

I am certain...someone will notice!

Be still my heart...

AND...

Just because I can...

Here's a close up!

Now...

Who's ready for some cooler weather...

That would be ME!
