Creating a Monogram

DIY Bride has a wonderful tutorial on creating a monogram in Microsoft Word. I have used this technique many times to create patterns for making my favorite embroidered pillowcases.

Especially useful are the instructions on how to create text boxes with no fill and no line, which enables you to overlap the boxes and manipulate the distance between letters. You are all probably well-informed about those skills, but it was helpful to me in my technologically-challenged state.

For instance, I cannot figure out a way to insert one of my monograms into this post. I can, however, upload a photo. So, there.
