I call this decorative alphabet for embroidered monograms Floral Script.
When it comes to naming things, I have very little pizzazz. I’m afraid I’m the type of person who would name a dog “Spot” without any qualms of conscience!
Still, in my defense, Floral Script tells you pretty much what you can expect from this alphabet: script-like letters with a little floral element for decoration. (Incidentally, the name could be equally applied to hundreds of decorative alphabets out there!)
Back in June of this year, I shared with you the first four letters of the Floral Script Alphabet.
While preparing all those letters, I was bombarded with requests to make all the monogram alphabets on Needle ‘n Thread available in one PDF publication. I did that, collecting together a total of 16 beautiful monogram alphabets into one PDF named Favorite Monograms.
And now it’s time to complete the Floral Script alphabet available individually here on Needle ‘n Thread, for those who have been waiting for the rest of the letters!
Since publishing Favorite Monograms, I’ve worked through several samples of embroidered monograms, showing you different embroidery techniques that can be used to create your own lovely lettering.
You can find all the embroidered monogram samples here. If you explore those articles, you’ll discover material lists, tutorial links, all the techniques and everything you need to know to work a variety of monogram styles.
This was my sample for the Floral Script alphabet. The E is embroidered in stem stitch, long & short stitch, and satin stitch, using DMC embroidery floss.
In this first article on the Floral Script E, you’ll find the color list and an explanation of techniques. In this second article, you’ll find the finished letter and any tips that will help you out along the way.
