Monogram crests ABC-cross-stitch pattern
Birthday, wedding, new home or new baby – these versatile cross-stitch designs will ﬁt the occasion every time!
Striking and elegant, we think you’ll ﬁnd these ﬂoral monograms are the perfect partner to any special occasion.
Some events are so momentous that they deserve something truly exceptional with which to celebrate them, and this opulent monogram crest abc really ﬁts the bill. As well as being easy to stitch, these designs are wonderfully versatile. You can omit the crest for a more informal feel – perhaps for a birthday or congratulations card.
There’s also the option of including a date preceded by ‘EST’; perfect if you’re marking a date such as a wedding. The spray of ﬂowers adds a splash of colour, bringing an autumnal twist to the
ﬁnished piece, but you could easily use a diﬀerent palette to customise your blooms.
