I monogrammed a linen hand towel for Kyra’s sixth birthday and enjoyed it so much I might do more. My source for narrow-loom linen has closed but I found plain linen teatowels in Ikea – not the same quality but good enough.
I started monogramming years ago when Elly showed me beautiful linen napkins, towels and sheets hand-monogrammed and numbered, from a big house in Belgium, and I thought: I can do that. Paddy gave me a little Danish book with patterns and I was up and running. Usually a winter evening thing.
