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. 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?

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

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