Even though you could possibly get these patches on the web and also at your embroidery store what’s more fun is to construct it yourself. You can choose a design or maybe even get creative and make your personal design with regards to the goal of your patch. For example if you want to create a silent collar variety of patched to be sewed on to your children’s blankets you can make mini patterns of the toys that he or she likes. You can also make patches with themes to be assembled to look just like a collage. Getting a little creative is all it will take.

To begin with making your sew on patch, get the design ready on paper in greater detail. Draw out the stitches that you’ll be using and fill in the drawing using the colors that you would like to work with on the patch to get a clear idea of your vision. Now use a tracing paper and trace out this complete pattern on the cloth you will be using. Once that is done fix some backing paper on the back of the design to make certain the pattern carries a smooth and uniform finish. Fasten a hoop around the pattern after being sure that the pattern is in the center of the hoop and get to work embroidering.

Utilize a higher density of thread when producing borders inside your patch as that will make your patch look just as if it’s sitting within a frame. Then get to embroider the remainder of the patch. Once you have completed embroidering cut out the patch leaving some seam space. This extra seam will probably be used while you’re sewing the patch in position.

Now that your sew on patch is prepared, everything you should do is get ready with a needle and thread or a sewing machine to sew the patch in position. The first task to do this is to secure the patch into position with pins so it doesn’t shift while you are sewing it on. Now thread your needle picking a thread of the color of the patch. You can also use a contrasting color thread with respect to the kind of look you intend to give your patch. Now sew all along the perimeter of the patch using small straight stitches. Keep your handiwork as neat as you possibly can to grant an expert look to your stitching. Secure the patch firmly into position and cut off any additional thread and you are done sewing in your patch!
