How to make easy an embroidery badge from home

Frequently if we could do with an embroidery badge we head to the store and try our luck. If you feel that you are never capable of finding something you want at these stores or need to make something which is tailored and different then you can certainly conveniently make these embroidery badges from home. All that you will be needing may be a dose of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is usually used whenever we want to customize our clothes such that we can be seen as an element of an organization. So be it a garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you could make your own personal logo and badge in your own home. You will need a few supplies for example a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive and a few tracing paper.

Begin your patch making starting with zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportions so remember that your pattern isn’t too busy. You may have some words with the pattern to denote the motto of the group or you can do away with the words and get only a beautiful pattern.

When you have selected the pattern you should transfer that onto paper. Just remember to keep the border thick given that the border will serve as the frame of the badge. Color the drawing out in the colors that you would like to use in the final badge. Once you are satisfied with your design trace it on a tracing paper first after which you can transfer this tracing on the cloth. Ensure that the color of the cloth is of the background that you like.

Once you have completed this step you’ve got to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is easily accessible at all embroidery stores in several types. You’ll find the wash away papers that wash off easily and then there are tear away ones that you can tear off when you’re ready with your design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop round the pattern making sure that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This will help in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It may also help greatly if you’ve got a detailed design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches that you would like to work with.

Now you may get set and commence embroidering your embroidery badge. Make sure that you work with a higher density of thread to create the border since this would be the frame for the badge. After you have completed the total embroidery get rid of the badge from your frame and cut it out leaving a small seam space. After having cut the badge from your big cloth you will need to carefully reduce the excess seam as closely as possible on the badge. You may then either stick the badge right to the garment of your choice or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and have it ready for usage.
