When you wish to decorate an outfit, accessory, luggage piece or even hats you can easily sew on badges to achieve the new look easily. Badges or patches when placed strategically can immediately affect the look of a garment or accessory and take it from boring to spunky in just a few minutes. If you’ve got children and they keep earning badges of merit you would like to sew them on. However, as intimidating as it might sound, sewing on badges is quite easy once you know the right way to get it done.

To do this approach to sewing on a badge, start by placing the badge in the place for which you want it to be. Now secure the badge well with a few pins in order that it stays into position and doesn’t shift when you are sewing it on. Now if you happen to be putting the patch over a garment, you need to fix the patch after which try the garment on to be sure that the patch or the badge looks most suitable in the place. In case your patch needs a little readjustment you can do it at this time easily.

Now thread the needle making sure that the thread that you are currently using isn’t very long. Maintain the thread within a length of approximately 18inches for easy maneuvering. If your thread is too long then you might get bothered by knots. Once you have the thread ready create a knot at the end of the thread. You could thread a needle manually by holding the non knotted end between your forefinger and thumb and then passing it in the eye of the needle. You may as well consider the assistance of a needle threader if you find threading a needle in this manner difficult.

Pass the needle through the badge and the fabric ensuring that the knot is on the wrong side of the patch. Leave a space of 1/8th of an inch from where you began stitching keeping this distance from the last stitch all the time. Continue stitching surrounding the entire perimeter of the badge till you have finished stitching it all the way through. Now knot the thread on the underside of the patch by looping your thread by using a single stitch. Pull the thread firmly to secure the knot and then cut-off any excess thread that’s left. Lastly take off the extra safety pins that you were using to secure the patch in position.

You may as well sew on badges with the help of a sewing machine if you don’t want to do the same manually. Choose a thread that matched the colour of the patch and then tread your machine. You could also pick a contrasting color depending on the look that you want to provide your badge. Once this is successfully done you need to start sewing you badge. Makes use of the surface of the badge for your starting point and sew all along the edge of your badge using the regular stitch mode ending in your starting position. Once done, cut the excess thread that connects the badge to the machine and your garment is ready for usage together with the badge.
