    Monograms and Embossed Alphabets can make an elegant addition to many different gifts and projects. We want to feature two exciting Design By JuJu Exclusive embossed alphabet designs, but before we begin...

    Some Info on Embossed Designs

    two-letters / Embossed AlphabetsEmbossed embroidery is a lovely three-dimensional technique that leaves some areas of the design open and raised when stitched on fabrics that have a nap such as towels or fleece. The rest of the design flattens down the napped fabric. Try stitching this type of embroidery design on a robe, or a set of towels for your bath or kitchen . PDF instructions on how to use embossed monogram is included with both sets.
