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 Z


Amazon Books

Finally! My first alphabet of monograms for hand embroidery is finally finished! The letter Z completes the set! Here it is… I still have a little tiny bit of work to do on the monogram alphabet. Thanks to Margaret, I’ve got the first half of the alphabet traced in vectors, so they’ll have the same smooth lines. I just need to replace the fuzzier letters – so I’ll be doing that in the next couple days!

I have a Celtic-like alphabet I’m thinking of doing next. The letters are smaller than these, and a little more intricate, but I like the alphabet! I’ve got it on my list of Things to Do… you know the list – the kind that keeps growing!

Here’s the Z:

  1. Yay for finishing the alphabet! I don’t know any Zeldas, Zachariahs or Ziggys, but I do have a kitty named Zoogie. Hmm…
    – Jeannine 🙂

  2. Hi Mary.

    Thank You for your alphabet. I was looking for monograms and stumbled onto your website.

    I love all the letters, but the T looks funny to me. If you look at the whole alphabet together the T sort of looks odd. Is there anyway to sort of make the top straighter and less curved.

    I do not know if you have had other observations about the T. I just struck me that it does not look as if it fits in.

    Thanks you for this alphabet.

  3. Thanks for the beautiful flowered monograms. Its just what I was looking for to paint on the toy/hope chest I am making for my granddaughter. This will be something she will never outgrow!

  4. Hi Mary,
    I just downloaded the whole alphabet and wanted to say thank you very much for taking the time for bringing these beauties to the rest of us. Found your sight through Pinterest..will spread the word how generous you are and so glad to see a blog that is still in business!!

    Much Appreciated,
