Jordan will be heading off to college in a few weeks, so she has all new towels and sheets that need to be monogrammed! I had never monogrammed sheets and I really haven't done very many towels, so I relied heavily on this Embroidery Placement Guide. It was very helpful and I'm pleased with all the results. Towel set 1:
One of the most exciting things about this project is that I found a J I actually like!!! J is such a weird letter. (So is T for that matter, my initials are really annoying). In most beautiful script fonts, you can't tell the difference between the I and J (and often the T looks like a J, sigh...). And in fonts where J is recognizable, it looks incredibly boring. So imagine the delight I experienced finding a beautiful J... right under my nose!! This J is from Embird Alphabet #38, which I use a lot. Isn't it lovely? I used a fill stitch in four different sizes for the various items.
