Making Embroidered Iron on Patches

There was a point in time when embroidered iron on patches were used to mostly cover up holes which may have happened over a garment. Although with a modest amount of versatility and imagination you can work with this patch and add an element of spunk and flair to any outfit which you choose. It’s not only clothes on which you can use these patches but these embroidered iron on patches could be used to liven up bags, shoes, pillows, furniture, hat’s�the list is just as limitless as your imagination.

If you wish to make tailored patches then you can simply do it yourself. You can get most of the products that you need very easily at stores where you can get pre-made patches. The most significant selling point of utilising an iron on patch is that you can devote all the time you wish to in producing them but have to spend very little time affixing them.

You will need to have your items set up before you start developing your patch. But before you can get your resources think of the design of the patch that you would like to produce. Upon getting the design made to size you must sketch or trace precisely the same to the fabric. Make certain you don’t embroider the design and style onto the cloth without having the hoop in order for the executed pattern turns out flat. Now place a tear away backing sheet on the wrong side of the patch and connect the embroidery hoop in position so that the design is taut. It’s also possible to apply certain backing spray to amend your backing paper in position.

Now you may start embroidering your iron on patch. Make sure that your thread is no longer than two feet at some point so that you could embroider easily and don’t need to bother with unneeded tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design being sure that you begin each length of the thread from the back of the design so the knots or extra lengths don’t appear in the front of the pattern.
After you have finished embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and take away the backing paper by tearing it away delicately. Take a little iron on adhesive paper and cut it towards the similar size of your patch. Now place your patch face-down on an ironing board and set the iron on adhesive patch glue side down on your patch. Take a clean piece of cloth or paper towel on top of the sheet. Put your iron on the low setting and iron the adhesive on the patch. You can even make use of the silk setting on your iron. The paper towel or rag will guarantee that not one of the glue gets stuck in your iron.

Your embroidered iron on patches will be available to utilize after you accomplish this phase. Now all that you need to do is peel off the paper backing the adhesive right behind the patch, put it where you want to place it and iron it tightly into position. Iron the cloth back to front in order for the adhesive gets properly activated and maintains the patch in place.
