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: Fan Flower I


Amazon Books

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any monograms for hand embroidery! In fact, I had almost (almost!) forgotten about this alphabet! I don’t want to leave it half-way hanging and undone, so here’s the next letter in the “Fan Flower” alphabet: the letter I.

If you’re looking for stitching suggestions for this series of monograms, please check out the Letter A, where I’ve mentioned a few ideas for stitches. Also, if you have any ideas or input for stitching these letters, feel free to leave a comment!

Here’s the small I:

  1. Thank you Mary,

    I've enjoyed looking back and catching up on previous letters.

    There are other designs too, I see, in monograms so will look-see them sometime soon too.

    I like this fan flowers one. It's kind of Art Decoish or similar style.

    Cheers, Kath

  2. Thanks for continuing this alphabet of Fan Flowers, Mary! They can be worked in so many ways.
    I recently finished a large "C" fan flower for my Mom, worked in DMC Satin stem stitch for the outline. Used DMC perle 5 variegated "red" in seed stitch to fill the letter and satin stitch for the fans. Turned out to be very pretty. Looking forward to your posting the "S" 😉

  3. Thank you Mary
    I have been patiently waiting. As I think these letters will work wonderfully with my Crazy Quilt blocks. I have been enjoying the goldwork tutorial. I would have never guesed how they got the results on gold work that they do.Your goldwork is beautiful. I am not yet good enough at embroidery to spend that much on thread. So I am saving your tutorials for when I dom Get good enough. It is very beautiful. I hope I can do it some day. What a wonderful gift to a church it would make. thank you Karol
