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

Monograms for Hand Embroidery: K, L Daisy & Rings


Amazon Books

Last week, I posted the I & J monograms for this particular alphabet.

They weren’t the greatest hits in the world – the I is ok (it was the original), but the J (my re-draw) was another question. Someday, I’ll go back and try to re-imagine the J!

In the meantime, though, forward with the alphabet! Today, the K and the L.

Monogram K for Hand Embroidery

Usually, the K in any monogram alphabet is one of my least favorite letters. For some reason, they always look awkward to me.

But this one, I like. I like the fact that the two elements on the right side of the letter join all the way in at the flower. Sometimes, the join floats out in space. But here, there’s a nice connection.

And the L is a fairly typical L for this type of alphabet – a flowing, scripty L. I think it’s pretty! And I’m fairly certain Laverne would approve…

Printable Monogram Patterns

Here are the printable pages for the K and L. If you choose “no scaling” (or a similar setting) on your printer, the letters should print at 2″, 3″, and 4″ high. You can enlarge and reduce them to suit your needs!

  1. Good Morning, Mrs. Corbet! I love this K! Well… I guess that’s not entirely unexpected given my name, but I *really* love this K because it is so darned GIRLY! In general I’m a bit overly-formal when it comes to strangers and aesthetics, so I’m constantly forcing myself to “lighten up” as they say. That K is a perfect balance of fun and elegance! I can’t wait for the M and the T! Thank you so much!

  2. Dear Mary

    The K and the L Daisy Ring monograms are really pretty, I like the rolling scripty L it’s very elegant and lots of stitch ideas come to mind but I’ll wait for your e-book on monograms I’m sure there will be the right stitches which suit this specific design and this series of Daisy and Rings monograms. Thanks for creating these and for sharing the free patterns with us.

    Regards Anita Simmance

  3. Mary,

    I love your alphabet. I noticed on the J you created; the “balls” on the top are going a different direction than all the others in the alphabet. If you fixed that you may be happier with that letter.
    I appreciate all the work you put into making these vector images. It was so many hours and no one can appreciate it unless they’ve done it themselves.
    Thank you. It’s fun to see the designs turned into embroidery!

    1. Ah, yes, Robin! Thank you for that! I got your email, looked at it, and said, “By Golly, she’s right!” Next time I have a chance to play with it, I’ll flip those and work on the swashy upper part a little bit. I have a couple other ideas for a J. Thanks again! You’re a gem for noticing that! ~MC
