I was asked to embroider a monogram on a wedding photo book and registry book which each had an envelope flap. After digitizing the monogram, I made a stitch out to see the size. I cut around the outer edges of this to place on flap for best placement. I marked where I wanted to center the monogram to be with a pin. Then I stitched (basted) the flap to cutaway sheet I use for my 4x4 field. I stitched an X across the center point as the two layers would shift while embroidering if I didn't. I then hooped the cutaway backing and the wide edge of the flap. I had the book on the side that I could hold away from the machine (left) as it would have been difficult to hold on any other side. I made sure the embroidery would end up where I wanted it using my trace function (I have a Brother ULT 2003D). I then removed basting stitches. I was pleased with the results :-) Here is stitching with machine and finished book

wow! I love it. I would never have thought to embroider in that manner. Thanks, now you have me thinking!

I never thought of actually basting to the stabilizer. That seems like a great way to handle the layers. Thanks.

Buns, it was not possible to undo. It actually went amazingly smoothly the way I did it. I surprised myself!

Wow! That was a difficult job. I don't think I would have attempted that one. Thanks for the tips.

Wow. THAT was hard, I know. I embroider also. I don't think I would have attempted it, although was it possible to take the book apart and embroider, then reglue?
