  • Tracing paper

  • Sewing machine

  • Pencil

  • Straight pins

  • Fabric of your choice

  • Brush

  • "Glow" powder


  1. Draw the monogram design onto tracing paper

  2. Perforate the paper from the back side with a straight pin.

  3. Pin the pattern, so you can read it, onto the fabric.

  4. Dip just the edge of the brush lightly into the "glow" powder. It's called "glow" powder because it glows under the black lights on sewing machines.

  5. Gently drag the brush over the holes.

  6. Remove your pins and lift up your paper, and you have your design ready to be sewed.
