New Products at Madame Monogram

I've been thinking about offering some new products at MM for quite some time. In a little over a month I will be participating in New/Like New consignment sale at a local school and decided this was the perfect opportunity to put on my thinking cap. I decided to expand my offerings by adding some cute things for children. Below are several melamine plate designs that can be personalized with either names or monograms. What do you think?

This company also offers cute trays and platters. Don't you think these would make lovely hostess or teacher gifts?

In addition to these items I may also be offering place mats, puzzles, stickers, lunch boxes, and childrens stationery.

Let me know what y'all think!

Graduation Gift Follow Up

For those of you who were interested by the monogrammed laundry bags that I did as graduation gifts, here is a follow up showing Miss Frances with her monogrammed gifts! This stuff is so cute, it makes me want to live in the freshman dorm all over again (only if Katie, Sydney, and Cheri will come along for the ride...we can all be suite mates!).

If you are interested in monogrammed gifts for someone you know, I can be reached at

The Chicks

Not too long ago I was contacted by a bride named Nicole through my etsy store to do a custom pair of chair sashes for her wedding. At first I was a little unsure of how they would turn out, but as you can see below they rocked! One sash said "The", the other read "Chicks". Placed next to each other and you had a cute photo op as well as a unique way to mark the seats for the Bride and Groom.

Jane Shauck from Iris Photography was kind enough to share this image with me. Iris Photography is based out of West Hartford, CT. If you are getting married in the North East you would be crazy not to check her availability. If you are interested in learning more about Jane and Iris Photography or just want to see more of Nicole and Tony's wedding (it was lovely) here is the link.

Sashes are currently on sale at

Graduation Gifts

A couple of weeks ago a dear frined of mine came to me needing a graduation gift for her cousin who would be attending Auburn University in the fall. After a few different ideas, we came up with a personalized laundry bag. This will be the perfect gift for her since she will be living in the dorm and depending on the dorm may have to take her laundry half way across campus.

Here is a photo of the finished product. I have since done bags for 2 other soon to be college students. The trim portions are also pictured below. There are 2 bags left, at $28.00 each they are a great graduation gift. Any takers?

New designs

Last week I stumbled across some wonderful new embroidery frames. I have these available in small, medium, large and wide (perfect for first names). These stitch out beautifully and can be done in any color combination. I think these would look great on burp cloths, tote bags, baby bibs, and so much more!

Lavender Sachets

Completing samples and taking pictures of the new lavender sachets took a little longer than I had expected, but it's finally done. Below you will see the four different fabrics MM has selected along with some fun ribbon that completes the look. For $21 MM will hand make a trio of sachets for you. One sachet will have either the letter or monogram of your choice, the other two will be left plain or will have a pretty ribbon tied around them. I think these make a perfect Easter or Mothers Day treat. Not all the sachets have the same fabric, feel free to mix and match. I personally love the green cane print with the cream solid.

Not only are these sachets pretty to look at, but the lavender is a natural moth repellent. Pack a couple of these away with your winter sweaters and not only will they smell lovely when you pull them out next year, but free of moth holes!

New Spring Items

This warm weather has my creative juices flowing and I started thinking about fun spring time items I could create for Madame Monogram. One new thing that MM will be offering shortly is a cute as pie lavender filled sachet. I am working on the final fabric and design, but should have them available soon!

Normally I would post photos of these new ribbons here, but instead I am going to be posting them on my new WEB SITE! That's right! To check out my new found goodies you will have to check them out at
