When you’d like to modify the style of a piece of clothing, bed cushion, blanket and even a lampshade then one good way to achieve that is by using an embroidery patch. Many people think that an embroidery patch is utilized merely to conceal holes that come up in garments. However these patches could be a easy way to accessorize an outfit also to brighten up a vintage pillow�the list is as endless as the imagination.
To start making your patch you have to begin by having all your supplies in place. But before you set off to have your supplies spend some time and choose the pattern and model of your patch. Drawing out the design which you want in full color in conjunction with smaller details like the stitches that you are gonna be using could make your supply buying much easier. This step will also make sure you will be aware exactly how your final design will be. Any changes you want to create in the design and pattern might be best made now.
The good thing about making an embroidery patch on your own is that you could not simply use a pattern in the design but can contain a mixture of words and patterns, words alone or patterns alone. You may also create your patch specific to a purpose. For instance in order to enliven a biker jacket or possibly a garden club bag then you could use a design specific to that particular purpose.
The supplies that you will need are embroidery cloth that ought to be medium heavy so that it is capable of supporting the patch design, embroidery threads in colors of the design, sewing scissors, an embroidery machine or needles if you do not wish to use a piece of equipment, backing paper, iron on adhesive or glue.
When you have transferred the design on paper you must trace it to the cloth. If you want a border on your design make sure that it is drawn slightly thick for you to embroider easily into it. Fix the backing paper to the wrong side of your drawing and then fix the embroidery hoop above the pattern ensuring that the pattern falls in the exact center of the hoop. Using an embroidery hoop makes certain that your design is embroidered in a very taut manner and doesn’t look loopy and loose.
When you have completed these steps it is time to get moving. Start embroidering your patch inside out ensuring that you utilize a rather higher thread count on the border. This will probably make your patch look almost commercially made lending an expert overall look to it.
When you have completed making your embroidery patch remove it carefully from the hoop and slowly tear off the backing paper. Now cut the patch from the cloth leaving some seam space. You can actually tuck the seam at the back of the patch, glue on another section of fabric into it and fasten a pin with it or cut the surplus seam and apply an iron on adhesive and also have it ready for usage.
