Victorian Alphabets, Monograms and Names for Needleworkers: from Godey's Lady's Book (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint) Reviews
I had read the book and wanted embroidery pattern.
I ordered this to hand embroidery a monogram on a quilt. Most of the designs were too intricate for the monogram I needed.
The book has some beautiful alphabets and I'm excited to get to the level where I can recreate them. Well organized. Lots of variety.
This book is not for the beginner. There are many different alphabet styles from simple to complex. We sent our wedding invitations wrapped in antique hankerchiefs and I used this book to embroider the ladies initials on them.
This book has a great range of alphabet lettters, but unfortunately many are small and did not enlarge very well for my purpose, which was embroidery. It was published in 1974, so the transfer instructions are very out of date - there are much better methods now. I'm sure there would be more modern books which are better for embroidery monograms.
I have many initials books and every time I find a new style in a book, it feed may imagination. This one has a few styles I had not seen so I like it.
