Making Embroidered Iron on Patches

There was a period when embroidered iron on patches were utilized to mostly hide holes which may have happened on a garment. However with a bit of versatility and imagination you can work with this patch and put an element of spunk and vogue to any clothing you choose. It’s not merely clothes on which you can utilize these patches but these embroidered iron on patches may be used to liven up bags, shoes, pillows, furniture, hat’s�the list is just as countless as your imagination.

If you want to produce tailored patches then you could readily build-it-yourself. You could get all of the materials that you need to have easily at stores where you could purchase predesigned patches. The biggest selling point of utilizing an iron on patch is that you can devote all the time you would like to in making them but should spend a short amount of time affixing them.

You will need to have your items available just before you start developing your patch. But before you will get your supplies think of the style of the patch that you would like to produce. Upon getting the layout made to size you need to sketch or trace the same on the cloth. Make sure that you don’t embroider the style onto the cloth without having the hoop in order for the finished pattern comes out flat. Now put a tear away backing fabric on the wrong side of the patch and fix the embroidery ring in position to ensure the design is taut. You may even use some backing spray to mend your backing paper in position.

You can now begin embroidering your iron on patch. Ensure that your thread is no longer than two feet at some point so that you could embroider readily and don’t need to bother with unnecessary tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design being sure that you set about each length of the thread from the back of the design so that the knots or extra lengths don’t appear at the front of the design.
When you have accomplished embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and take away the backing paper by tearing it off gently. Take a little iron on adhesive paper and cut it towards the same size of your patch. Now place your patch face-down on an ironing board and put the iron on adhesive patch glue side down on your patch. Get a clear section of cloth or paper towel on top of the sheet. Set your iron on to the low setting and iron the adhesive to the patch. It’s also possible to use the silk setting in 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 could be set to utilize once you complete this step. Now all that you need to do is peel the paper backing the adhesive at the rear of the patch, put it where you wish to put it and iron it tightly in position. Iron the textile back to front so that the adhesive gets thoroughly activated and maintains the patch in place.
