The steps to making Embroidered Iron on Patches

There was a period when embroidered iron on patches were used to primarily hide holes that might have occurred over a dress. Although with a modest amount of resourcefulness and creative thinking you can work with this patch and add an element of spunk and flair to any clothing you choose. It’s not merely clothes where you can use these patches but these embroidered iron on patches can be used to decorate bags, shoes, pillows, furniture, hat’s�the list can be as limitless as your imagination.

If you wish to make custom-made patches then you could conveniently build-it-yourself. You can get all of the supplies that you will need easily at stores where you could buy predesigned patches. The biggest benefit of using an iron on patch is that you could spend all the time you wish to in doing them but have to spend very little time linking them.

You will have to have your items available just before you start making your patch. But before you get your supplies think about the design of the patch that you would like to create. Upon having the style made to size you need to sketch or trace the same on the cloth. Make certain you don’t embroider the design and style on the cloth without the hoop so the executed pattern turns out flat. Now place a tear away backing sheet on the wrong side of the patch and connect the embroidery ring in place so that the design is tight. It’s also possible to apply certain backing spray to attach your backing paper in position.

Now you can begin embroidering your iron on patch. Make sure that your thread isn’t longer than two feet at one time for you to embroider easily and don’t need to work with unwanted tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design making sure that you start out each length of the thread from the back of the design so the knots or extra lengths don’t show up in the front of the pattern.
When you have completed embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and take away the backing paper by tearing it away gently. Try taking a little iron on adhesive paper and cut it to the exact same size of your patch. Now put your patch with their face down on an ironing board and put the iron on adhesive patch glue side down on your patch. Get a clean piece of cloth or paper towel over the sheet. Set up your iron on to the low configuration and iron the adhesive on the patch. It’s also possible to use the silk setting in your iron. The paper towel or rag will guarantee that none of the glue gets ensnared to your iron.

Your embroidered iron on patches could be available to utilize after you accomplish this step. Now all that you need to do is peel off the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, put it where you wish to place it and iron it tightly into position. Iron the cloth back to front so that the adhesive gets thoroughly activated and will keep the patch in place.
