Hello, WeAllSew readers! With the holidays fast approaching, stitching out custom embroidery projects moves into full swing! I’m looking for interesting ways to monogram and personalize gift items. Here are a few of the “monogram doodles” I’ve come up with using the fonts built into BERNINA Embroidery Software 7, and some thoughts to get you started on your own personalized embroidery projects.
1. As you begin experimenting with layout options, look at each letter as a graphic element rather than a letter. Refrain from the “need” to align or justify the letter as it is written. Enjoy the geometric nature of the font.
2. Consider mixing fonts for a modern approach to monogramming.
As you are embroidering for the holidays, please forward pictures of your projects or work in progress – I’d love to see them. And remember to send your embroidery wishes my way!
Until next week, Happy Embroidering,
Jennifer Gigas VP Professional Products, BERNINA of America
