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: Celtic R


Amazon Books

I’ve been a wee bit slow about posting these monograms for hand embroidery, haven’t I?! Well, if you have someone whose name (first or last) begins with an “R” on your Christmas list, perhaps you can do something with this “R” monogram!

I gave stitching suggestions for this set of monograms under the Celtic A, if you want some tips on how you could hand embroider something with a monogram like this. You can also use the monograms for other applications… a reader sent me an e-mail and said she was using them to etch beer mugs as Christmas gifts! What a terrific idea! (If you know how to etch beer mugs….)

Anyway, here’s the R, in a smaller format:

  1. I just wanted to say I am in such love with your Celtic alphabet. I am monogramming blankets as my first project and I just know the receivers are going to fall in love with them.

    I would BEG you for the letters J and K. Please please grace us with some more Celtic letters.
