Monograms add a personal touch to any project and ideally adding one should be easy. Thanks to BERNINA Toolbox software you can quickly create monograms with 1, 2 or 3 letters and proceed to embroidery in very little time. Your biggest decision will be on lettering style and whether or not to add a decoration around the letters.

Select the Monogram tool on the left of the screen

A Note about Letter Spacing and Monograms:

Just like a word processor, Toolbox software will put an even amount of spacing (kerning) between individual letters of a monogram. As can be seen in the example above, the result may appear unevenly spaced due to the shape of individual letters.

Heredecorative pillow covers, the space between A/N seems shorter than between N/G.? This has to do to the trailing stroke of the N on its right hand side. It helps remembering that letter spacing is calculated between the rectangles framing each individual letter. Luckily, it is very simple in Toolbox to nudge a letter closer or further apart (see the next steps).

TIP: You can resize any letter individually while it is selected if desired, while maintaining the original size of the other letters.

Touch the Select Designs tool on the right of your screen to select the entire monogram.

For this project we needed the monogram to be a bit smaller:

Note: You can further adjust the size from this screen

Note: While this monogram would easily fit in a medium size hoop, the tote bag it is intended for would be difficult to handle with a smaller hoop.

By choosing a large hoop, the bag will be more easily laid down on a sticky stabilizer and the embroidery process greatly facilitated.

Note: The following steps are not necessary as the monogram comes out with a single color and you can pick any color of your choice when threading the machine.? The process is outlined for your reference ?should you need it in the future.

If you would like to change the color of the monogram, click on the Design Colors tool on the left of your screen.

On the right hand side of your screen, in the Design Colors area:? Touch the Thread Color icon (see the yellow circle on the right).

In the Save File dialog box that opens up:

A note for BERNINA embroidery machine owners: Typically when saving a design in the BERNINA EXP format 3 files are automatically generated, with the extensions EXP / INF / BMP, where the:

BERNINA Toolbox software will only generate the EXP and INF files (and no BMP file). This is not a problem as BERNINA machines generate the thumbnails on the fly if they are not already provided.

This is just a sample of how you can create monograms with BERNINA Toolbox software. Whether you want to create a 1, 2 or 3 letter monogram the process is the same. Add a decoration you find attractive, size to taste and voilà! You have yourself a monogram.
