Tulip Monograms – Y & Z


Amazon Books

Finally, the last of the Tulip Monogram alphabet for hand embroidery – the Y and the Z!

Admittedly, they aren’t the most frequently used initials in the alphabet, but we wouldn’t want to leave them out, would we?

Monograms for Hand Embroidery - Tulips - Y and Z

You can now find all the letters in the Tulip Alphabet available here – just scroll down the page for the Tulips, which are at the end.

There’s a PDF printable available for each group of letters, making it easier for you to download and save the letters you want.

Embroidered Monogram R with Tulip

If you’re looking for stitching suggestions for any of the letters in this alphabet, you’ll find examples and suggestions with letters A – D and E – H. Read the comments, too! There are good suggestions in the comments area on both of those articles.

Tulip Monograms Y & Z – Printable

Here’s the handy dandy PDF printable for letters Y and Z. The letters will print at 2.5″ high, if you choose the “no scaling” or 100% option in your printer settings.

Tulip Monograms Y and Z (PDF)

I hope you can find some good use for these monograms! Remember, they work well for other crafts, too, besides embroidery – card making, paper crafts, painting, and so forth. One reader uses the monograms here on Needle ‘n Thread for glass etching, to give as gifts, which I think is a neat idea!

  2. Hi Mary,

    Things have been busy here lately, but I just wanted to take some time out and wish you the best of luck on your upcoming surgery and recovery.

    I’ve learned a heck of a lot from you and am slowly working my way through old posts, and every new stitch I discover through your website excites me all over again.

    So… rest and recover well!
