Applique Monogram Letters with FREE printable letters

Posted by  ·  August 19, 2018  ·  Last Updated: August 19, 2018

These monogram letters will take your projects up a notch by embellishing them with applique. Printable letters make applique easy!

monogram letters

What is Applique?

Pieces of decorative fabric are attached to another piece of fabric with decorative stitching.  I made one of these monogrammed totes for a little birthday gift and it was quick and easy.  You can even include a coordinating crayon roll.

I  purchased the totes awhile ago (okay years ago and found them in the “great craft room clean-up”). Find similar totes at large craft stores.  Use this machine applique technique to embellish t-shirts, onesies for babies, aprons etc. No worries if you can’t find a premade tote bag. I have a step by step tote bag tutorial.  Making a tote is a super easy sewing project.

Monogram Letter Supplies

  • Lightweight Heat n’ Bond Lite’
  • something to applique, a tote is used in this project
  • fabric
  • iron
  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • scissors
  • pencil or pen
  • printer and paper to print the templates
  • printable letters templates

Applique Step by Step

It just a few easy steps you can embellish a variety of projects. You won’t believe how easy it is! I use interfacing to make monogramming simple.  HeatnBond lite is an two-sided iron-on interfacing that has a paper backing on one side.

Types of machine applique

Here are three different types of applique that you can use to monogram your projects with these letters.

Straight Stitch Applique

For this project, I am using a technique called straight stitch applique. It is the simplest method and easily dressed up any project.  Once washed the edges of the fray can fray giving texture and interest. No worries if you don’t like that I show you what product to use to prevent fraying below. Another example of the straight stitch without interfacing is on this birthday hat.

Zig Zag Applique

These monogram letters could also be zig-zag appliques.  This technique keeps the edge of the fabric from fraying. The stitch length on the sewing machine can be adjusted to sew a wide zigzag or close together to make a satin stitch.

Reverse Applique

I think reverse applique gives a wow. I think it is especially great for felt projects. You can see how I used reverse applique for this birthday crown.

How to machine applique monogram letters

Trace your letter onto the paper (smooth) side of the HeatnBond Lite.  The letter must be reversed. Following the HeatnBond instructions, iron it to the wrong side of the fabric that you want to applique to the tote.

Cut out the letter and peel off the paper.

tote-4There is now adhesive on the back (wrong) side of the letter. Flip the letter over and it is ready to go.

tote-5Again following package instructions, iron your letter to the tote bag.  Keep the letter towards the top so you are able to easily sew with the sewing machine.

how to applique

Machine stitch around the letter.  You can also hand stitch around the letter.  A blanket stitch looks cute!

appliqueI used fray check around the edges to keep the fabric from fraying.  You might decide to let the edges fray—–it looks good too!

tote-8

Finished! It is so quick and you have a really useful gift. These monogram letters could be used to monogram towels, shirts, blankets. The possibilities are endless.

I hope you will give it a try.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you for these, We have one grand daughter (our son's baby)and I did a blanket for her but I didn't have a gender or name when I made it to send to the UK (we live in New Zealand).
    I want to do a blanket for our daughter now, who is expecting a grand daughter in August in Sydney, Australia. It will be similar to the one I sent to The UK, but I have a name now, so can applique her name on it.

    It looks like you'll be doing the entire alphabet eventually -- tee hee -- but I'd like to request a "U" and an "R" for some projects I have in mind. Thanks for doing all the work and sharing it. I love this idea and see lots of applications (excuse the pun) for it.

  209. Monday, February 16th, 2009
    Cute, cute! A and E would be great :) Also, how did you sew all the way around w/o being able to turn the bag completely around at the bottom? Does that make sense? I guess I just need to try it....I've wanted to embellish my girls' jeans before, but just couldn't figure out how on earth I'd work with a skinny jean leg on the sewing machine when it was so narrow. The bag doesn't have an opening on the bottom so I'm not sure how I'd manage to sew all the way around so neatly, if at all...can you tell I'm a fairly novice sewer? Thanks!
  210. Monday, February 16th, 2009
    Thank you your things are wonderful, can we have a P?
  211. Monday, February 16th, 2009
    Looks absolutely darling! Also looks simple enough for me to try...I'm nervous about anything sewing related. Maybe I'll try!
  212. Monday, February 16th, 2009
    Thank you so much! I did my first applique right before Christmas and had the most difficult time finding a letter that I liked that wasn't too difficult to stitch around. Thanks for providing these! I will most definitely use them in the future.

    So cute! Really fresh and crisp. I love the dotted fabric!

    I've been going through a phase of personalizing things with embroidery, applique, and other methods (including some totes you can see on my blog!) so this one hits close to home. Thanks for sharing!

    I am not a seamstress BUT I do think I could tackle this project! You gave great directions and it seems pretty easy to do. I'd love to have A for Anna. Thanks for sharing.

    I use a simple zig-zag stitch for appliques (I call it a cheater's satin stitch!) and it works beautifully, and even lasts through all the laundering that the item may have to endure. I do love the effect that the machine stitch offers, too! Thanks for sharing!

    Also, your readers will have a plethora of fonts if they just open up their Word program, type a letter, pick a font, enlarge the letter and print it out!

    Not to mention seemingly simple too! By the looks of it, I would say my oldest daughter (8) would be able to help with this project. Thanks for sharing it!

    Those look fun, and the best thing about buying something and then forgetting about it for years is that now it's stash, and using it has become a virtuous thing!
