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: Letter B


Amazon Books

Here’s the next monogram for hand embroidery – the letter “B.” I think it’s a bit fuzzier than I would like, but if you’re tracing or transferring the design onto fabric, I think it’ll work fine.

This whole alphabet of monograms for embroidery is filling out ok, but it seems like a slow process at this pace! I keep forgetting that, at one letter a day, it will take 26 days to finish one alphabet. I shall pursue a solution to that!

But in the meantime, enjoy the B:

  1. I’ve written before you are tireless! And you say it is slow! I think i can imagine the big work you are doing. The letters are a precious work!

  2. Hi Mary – Every day I’m amazed at how many letters you are adding to the alphabet! I thought it would take much longer especially with all of the classes you are teaching!

  3. Hello Mary,
    I just printed out the letter B to put on pillowcase.What stitches should I use.
    thanks in advance for your advice.

    1. I have the same question. I’m new to stitching and wanted to surprise my parents with their letter names embroided on pillows, but I don’t know which stitch to use? Thanks

  4. Hi Mary! Thanks so much for your work. I hand paint on glass, and actually just went online looking for monogrammed letter patterns for customizing some champagne glasses for a wedding. I’m absolutely bookmarking your site!!!!


  5. Hi mary I’m actually 16 yrs old and love to draw and I used some of your letters in art peices. But I have a question if a family member was to open up a business and was thinking about using the letter S as an abbreviation for the business name would that be in any way plagiarism? Plz say mo because they loved the idea it goes with the product and I recommended them to use this. Plz respond as soon as possible. thank you!
