Freehand Monogramming

For giving garments and linens a personalized
touch, first transfer the design to the right
side of the fabric. An embroidery hoop is

recommended especially for soft fabrics and
toweling. (Fig.72) When you monogram
loosen upper thread tension slightly.

In order to monogram, you must move the
fabric slowly and run the machine rapidly.

Monogramming is like writing by moving the

paper under a stationary pen. Guide the fabric
slowly so that the zigzag falls close together
like a satin stitch, but be careful that the

stitches do not pile up. When guiding from
side to side, move fabric slightly faster to

avoid a heavy area.

Practice by forming loops. Once this is
accomplished any letter is easy.

Sometimes the use of paper or non-woven
interfacing under the fabric may make guiding

the fabric easier. The paper or interfacing may
be tom or cut away at the completion of the

monogram. When monogramming towels,
plastic film placed on the top will help cover

loops and make the monogram smooth. Pull

or cut away remaining plastic film when

Applying decorative shapes of fabric scraps to

household articles and colthing is a very

interesting way of trimming an otherwise
plain article. First, trace the design on fabric

to be appliqued, then pin or baste it securely

in place on garment. With a small straight
stitch or narrow zigzag, sew around the

transferred design. (Fig.73)

After excess fabric is trimmed away, sew
around the applique with a satin stitch. For a
smooth curve, stop frequently at the inside

edge of the curve to pivot the fabric slightly.
Corners look much better when the point is

stitched by pivoting rather than just turned.

As with all decorative stitches, paper may be
used to give more body to the fabric when

stitching and can be torn away when the

applique is completed. (Fig.74)


Bobbin thread should be placed

through the clip for all operations described
on page 19 and 20.
