I love monograms. I didn't particularly love my original monogram because the letters didn't intersect nicely. My married monogram is delightfully swirly. After a few months of ignoring my maiden monogram on my towels, I decided it was time to move on.
A few quick snips under the threads of the monogram and I was able to slip a craft tool under a letter.
With a gentle tug, the letter starts to unravel.
I flipped back and forth between the front and the back of the towel to grab any stray threads and the fabric backing that is used with the monogram machine.
The monogram is still pretty evident once the thread is gone. Rubbing the towel against itself helps get the terry cloth fluffed up again.
Throw the towel in the next load of laundry and evidence of the monogram disappears almost completely.
All that's left is the thread and fabric backing.
When your initials changed, did you get rid of anything you had monogrammed?
