A kind reader sent me a quick e-mail yesterday, with a link to a new addition to Antique Pattern Library – Sajou Album No. 612 – which is a gorgeous collection of monograms for hand embroidery. The monograms are presented in three sizes, and along with them are several very pretty border designs.
This is a beautifully clean copy of this particular Sajou album, so you’ll definitely want to download it for your files! Admittedly, one of the most appealing things to me about the Sajou albums of old is their covers. I love them! I’ve been collecting old Sajou albums for years, but I’m lucky if I ever find any of the old ones with decent covers, so I’m always thrilled to see a really clean cover on an uploaded digital version.
But of course, what’s a clean cover good for, if the content isn’t equally as pleasing? The monogram design in this album definitely lives up to the cover, that’s certain! it’s a gorgeous alphabet – very fancy! It would look lovely in whitework!
In this album, you’ll find three sizes of the monogram available. On the large ones, you can really see the details.
While the small designs tend to look a little crowded here, they print better from the available PDFs.
I did run into a few little problems trying to download the PDFs, but that could just be an internet blurp on my end (winter storm and all).
If you love monograms, you love this one, and …. best yet! …. it’s free. So jump on over to Sajou No. 612 on Antique Pattern Library and add it to your collection!
