Lettering & Monograms

It’s All About Perspective!

If you’ve ever gone on a road trip you’ve probably seen roadside attractions.  Imagine the excitement when the denizens of Tiny Land discovered enormous 1” pillows.


This new roadside attraction draws crowds of people who stop to get their photos taken.  If you take a closer look, the Flamingo’s legs are the letters “J” and “L”

About the “Pillows”
The scene was inspired by Eileen’s beautiful assortment of pillows on the cover of Volume 102 January/February 2017.  I wanted to see what a miniature interpretation would look like.


If you look closely, I even coordinated some of the same decorator fabrics Eileen used on her cover project.



The really fascinating part about the pillows is the tiny lettering.  The “SAS” monogram is only ¼ of an inch tall.  Perfect Embroidery Pro includes an assortment of fonts digitized for small applications.

Whether you need to stitch large embroidery fonts (like Eileen’s oversized pillows) or very small fonts as seen in Tiny Land, Perfect Embroidery Pro has you covered!


Font:  Arial Small

Additional features:

  • Symbols were incorporated, including the Top Hat, Flamingo and Pine Tree.
  • I used the Bridge Convex Top envelope shape for the “TRB” monogram.

22 new symbols are available to all Perfect Embroidery Pro software owners.  Just run the latest update (Version 9.35) and you’ll find 22 new symbols installed in your software!

    Got the magazine yesterday and LOVED these small pillows! I am very impressed, especially since lettering is so hard when it is small! Great, great job and thanks for sharing this post. I am even more impressed!

      Thank you, Linda!

  • Diana Lorentzen

    Loved the new magazine and information about the Monograms.

    Where can I fine the PKE font design that was on the cover of the Jan/Feb magazine.

    • Denise Holguin

      Thank you for reading!

      The PKE font is from the Magnolia Collection. This collection is available as a special offer at DIME Inspirations Events. Local dealers throughout the US offer the events.

    There’s just something super cute about miniatures. Clever “little” assortment Denise! Great way to show how crisp those little letters are too.

    • Denise Holguin

      Thank you, Joanne! Just don’t look too closely. I had to do some hand sewing and goodness– that part wasn’t easy!


  • Kathleen De Verville

    I have version 9.30, checked for updates and it said i have the latest. Is there one coming out soon?

    • Shirley Gray

      Loved the magazine featuring monograms . Though I don’t have the software used (Perfect Embroidery Pro) I found the ideas helpful. I would love to find the source of 2 fonts: one used on the cover pillow PKE and the other used by Cathy Sundermann; CJS with the crab attached on pages 44 and 45.
      Thanks for any help.

    • Kathleen De Verville

      Never mind, I need to be a little more patient, it came through last night.

      • Denise Holguin

        Thank you for your patience! I was a bit trigger happy with the post. As you have discovered, the software update is now available. Apologies for the confusion.
