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: S, T (and News)


Amazon Books

Continuing on with this daisy & rings monogram alphabet for hand embroidery, here are the S and the T.

It’s perfectly understandable if you look at these two letters and say, Huh?

The S is an old scripted S, as is the T – although the T is somewhat reminiscent of an uncial-type T. Both of these styles are often seen in old alphabets for embroidery.

At first, for modern audiences, they can be somewhat difficult to get used to.

Just preparing you!

Here’s the S:

Monogram for Hand Embroidery - the Letter S

I know! You’re probably thinking it looks like an L that stopped short on the finish. It does. I agree. But assure you, it is an S!

And here is the T:

Monogram for Hand Embroidery - the Letter T

The T is slightly more common, I think, though still not what we’d normally associate with a T today, whether printed or scripted.

Personally, I like this style. I prefer it to a printed T or to the typical Palmer or Zaner-Bloser penmanship T. But that’s just me.

In fact, I embroidered a T on this needlebook, using a similar monogram (only with roses, not daisies, and no rings.) It’s a classic T for a monogram.

  1. It’s not just you, Mrs. Corbet. I prefer that style of T, also. The S, however, shall take a little more getting used to.
    Thanks for the patterns!
    I probably will not be embroidering anything this week. I’m making a dress, and I only have until this coming Sunday to get it done! And I also have school to do. The fastest I’ve ever gotten a dress done with doing school was a month, so we’ll see how this goes!

    Sarah 😀

  2. Thanks, Mrs. Corbet! This is almost as great as a Hummer update. Now, I can have all the letters I need for my project! I’m still looking around for fabric, but this is a perfect start! Have an awesome day!

  3. I was looking forward for an update on this alphabet and I have to say, I love the style of the S. It is similar to the cursive script children in Germany learn in elementary school in addition to block letters.
    Now I just need something I can embroider my monogramm onto 😉
    Cheers, Sarah
