Monogrammed Beach Hat

Before I begin today's post let me just say - I hate monograms.  I don't know why, but I am personally not a fan.
With that said, my daughter came to me last week and asked me to monogram my granddaughter's beach hat.  Of course I had to do it.  It was for my granddaughter. 
My daughter brought the hat and for a few days it sat off to the side, waiting for me to get in the mood to set up my machine for a monogram.  And then I remembered, I didn't own a single font for use with monogramming.  Sure I had couple of fonts, but as I have learned there's a difference in plain 'ol fonts and monogram fonts.
So off I went in search of a good monogram font.  That's when I came across the Interlaced Monogram font over at Applique Corner.  I thought it was a pretty font and would be good for use on the beach hat so I purchased it and off I went.
Everything was quick and easy to set up, and it stitched out fine.  I had a bit of puckering which I hate but we'll chalk this one up to a learning experience.  My daughter loved it and that's what counts in the end.  And I have a feeling this won't be the last of my monogram's.
