Today, I want to show you this beautiful font I used to stitch on a little pillow!
For fonts and pillows such as this one, or other projcts where I want an heirloom look, I prefer to use cotton thread to stitch the embroidery.
The majority of embroidery projects today are stitched with a polyester or rayon embroidery thread, which is both strong and will not fade or bleed.
Since I am now using a different machine to do all my monogramming and embroidery, I need a larger spool of thread than I was able to use on the old machine. I had no cotton thread in a large spool, other than thread for my serger. At the advice of my friend Laurie Anderson, I decided to try the embroidery using the serger thread. I was extremely pleased with the outcome. Now, if you are going to monogram or embroidery on a project of a very fine nature, such as antique linens or a christening gown, I would suggest you invest in a spool of very fine quality cotton thread.
