Making Embroidered Iron on Patches

There was a point in time when embroidered iron on patches were used to mostly cover up holes that might have occurred on a garment. But with a little bit of flexibility and creative thinking you can work with this patch and include an element of spunk and style to any outfit you choose. It’s not merely clothes where you may use these patches but these embroidered iron on patches may be used to spice up bags, shoes, pillows, upholstery, hat’s�the list can be infinite as your imagination.

In order to produce tailored patches then you could readily build-it-yourself. You can get most of the products that you need to have easily at stores where you could acquire available patches. The most significant selling point of utilizing an iron on patch is that you can devote all the time you want to in creating them but have to spend very little time linking them.

You will need to have your materials in place before you start making your patch. But before you can get your materials picture the style and design of the patch that you’d like to make. When you have the design made to size it’s important to sketch or trace precisely the same to the cloth. Make sure that you don’t embroider the style into the cloth without the hoop so that the finished pattern turns out flat. Now place a tear away backing fabric on the wrong side of the patch and fix the embroidery hoop in position in order for the design is taut. You may even use some backing spray to mend your backing paper in place.

You can now begin embroidering your iron on patch. Ensure that your thread isn’t longer than two feet at some point to enable you to embroider easily and don’t have to work with unneeded tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design ensuring that you set about each length of the thread from the back of the design so that the knots or extra lengths don’t show up in front of the design.
When you have finished embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and remove the backing paper by tearing it off delicately. Take some iron on adhesive paper and cut it towards the similar size of your patch. Now put your patch facedown on an ironing board and set the iron on sticky patch glue side down on your patch. Get a clear section of cloth or paper towel over the sheet. Set your iron onto the low setting and iron the adhesive onto the patch. You may even utilize the silk setting on your iron. The paper towel or rag will guarantee that not one of the glue gets ensnared in your iron.

Your embroidered iron on patches will be available to work with once you complete this step. Now all you need to do is peel the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, put it where you choose to place it and iron it firmly in position. Iron the textile inside out in order for the adhesive gets appropriately activated and helps to keep the patch in place.
