Late Night Monograms

I received a comment today, and it made me so happy to know that my blog is helping people! I have not embroidered/posted in a while so I decided to take a break from school and monogram something! I decided to monogram my iPad sleeve, yay! Heres how I started...

This is the sleeve I started with, and I choose to use a bright lime green that would match and stick out!

Next, I placed the hoop on the sleeve, this took forever because the material is so thick, but I was determined and finally got it! I put the piece on my machine, set up the sizing and monogram how i wanted it...and it the green button! 

Because it was so hard to get the hoop on I watched it closely just to make sure that it did not pop off! Also, since this was thicker material i went over the monogram twice, as long as you do not remove the hoop this is not a problem. I find that with thicker material doing it twice allows it to pop more, and to cover any spots that may be loose or not covered all of the way. I also do this with my appliqué designs. Yes, I know this uses more thread but it is completely worth it! 

Here is my finished product!

It feelt awesome to take sometime and get back to my monogramming, glad I was able to mark something off of my list. As always, please let me know if you have any questions! 

Enjoy your week :)
