Monogram Madness!

A tiny introduction to monogramming.  Perhaps you've heard of it, no?  It is HUGE here in the South.  HUGE.  I do a ton of monogramming.  TONS. Prepare yourself, there will be lots of monograms throughout my blog, though I will try my best to keep them from becoming overwhelming and obnoxious.
I monogram towels, baby clothes, children's blankies, stuffed animals, , wedding items galore, pillowcases, sewing machine covers, Christmas stockings, and more. 
You name it, I've probably monogrammed it.
That being said, there are now innumerable amounts of styles and fonts to monogram with to accommodate not just girls, but boys and couples.
The most commonly used is the Traditional Monogram (shown below) where your focus is on the last name initial in the center, larger than the other two initials.
Going from left to right:
First name initial, Last name initial, Middle name initial
Here are some pillowcases I recently did for my sister:
