Two Inch Victorian Initial Monogram


This photo illustrates the RibbonSmyth 2" Victorian Alphabet Rubber Stamp used in a monogram. This monogram was created for an ivory silk evening bag with a tortoise handle. The purse was duplicated from a 1940's purse in my collection. This purse was featured on Aleene's
"Creative Living" television series.
First I stamped the initials onto a piece of silk fabric. Then I satin stitched the initials using Silk thread and finished with variegated 4mm bone/ivory silk ribbon roses and buds, moss silk thread vines and leaves.
I added vintage three-cut brown beads among the flowers.
Very easy to create a personalized piece using hand embroidery.
