I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Monogram for Hand Embroidery: M


Amazon Books

As promised, I’m adding the “M” to my index of monograms for hand embroidery. Here’s the free embroidery pattern…

This was another messy monogram – when I scanned it, despite the resolution, I ended up with lots of broken or absent little line fragments, lots of fuzz, and there was also a slight wrinkle in the page, so a there was some creasing. Anyway, I think it’s ok now to use for an embroidery pattern! It’s no perfect graphic, but it will certainly serve for transferring an embroidery design, don’t you think?

I’m slowly cleaning up the whole alphabet. In the order of “most wanted,” the “S” will be up next. Then the “K” and the “V.” So keep an eye out!

Here’s the “M”…

  1. The M is gorgeous. Makes me want to buy some towels to monogram. (Or maybe I should practice on some old ones first…) I’d really love the letter R when you have time. Thanks!


  2. Hi Mary, could you tell me what kind of stitch would you implement to this lovely monogram?.

  3. Hi, i am new to this and was wondering how you get the pattern from here to your towel to embroider? Do you have to draw it on? Any tips or info would befantastic. Thank you very much!

  4. Do you have the monogram for the letter “M”, not in the Celtic style or the Fan Flower style, but the Flower style, in a downloadable PDF format? I can’t find it on your website, after considerable searching. If you do have it available as a download, could you send me the link to it?
    Thanks so much. I love your newsletter! It’s obvious how much work and love you put into it.

  5. I have been asked by my granddaughter to place initials on several hankies for her wedding presents to her special people. How do I download them? Many thanks for your Jumble, I look forward to finishing it. Neapolitan Chapter of EGA.

  6. Hi Mary,
    Thank you!

    How do I transfer the monogram to a dark brown pillow case I am embroidering? I am just learning….
    Thanks for great source of information, love your site.
