I’m using this page to create an index for monogram patterns used for hand embroidery. As I clean up some old monogram patterns I have, I’ll post them and add them to this index. I’ll include a picture of one letter, so you can see what the monogram style looks like, and then links to the individual patterns for the monograms. I hope you find these patterns useful and inspiring for your needlework endeavors!
For each letter of each alphabet, there will be a post with a full sized pattern on it. I’ll also include tips on how it might be hand embroidered. The individual letters are links to each full-sized monogram.
This set, from Journal des Demoiselles, features a specked area inside the curves of loose knotwork.
This set is also from Journal des Demoiselles, from the 1880′s.
Keep an eye out for future updates to the alphabet and additions of new alphabets.
Please note that all images here, to the best of my knowledge, are out of copyright. They come from old publications of magazines or needlework flyers that I’m trying to collect, most from the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. If you wish to add the images to your own website, I ask that you please note Needle ‘n Thread as the source, with a link. Thanks!
I’m always happy to hear about sources for these old publications, so if you know of any sources or have any that you are interested in selling, please contact me.
