I really love the look of embroidered monograms but can't always have them done the professional way. You either need a special machine or have someone do it for you. I wanted the look without the inconvenience. So, a trip to Hobby Lobby and a few dollars later bought me these.
You see, I've used these before. I used them on some lampshades and loved how they turned out. So, when I decided I wanted to monogram some other items in my house I knew these would work again.
I wanted to add a monogram to the little lavender filled sachets that Ann made me a while back.
I thought they would look good displayed in a bowl on my coffee table. Since they were plain, I thought a monogram with my first letter initial would be pretty.
Here it is just lying on top of the sachet. All I had to do was use a little fabric glue on the back of it and press it down. Easy peasy! These are iron on but I didn't trust the heat of the iron with the lavender inside.
Here they are on the coffee table. (Please excuse the messy sofa in the background.)
See what a difference?
Now, what about the "D"'s that I bought. I plan on using them on the back of the dining room slipcovers.
Since these will need to be washed from time to time, I will iron these monograms on. I am thinking I need to dye the monograms first though. The white doesn't stand out very much. I'm thinking of a soft grey color. They sold black monograms, but I didn't want them that dark.
So, what do you think? Do you love the ease of these iron on monograms as much as I do? They can be glued on too if it isn't something you can iron on. There were several different fonts, sizes and colors available at the store. This could get addicting!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
