In order to produce tailored patches then you can very easily build-it-yourself. You can get all of the supplies that you will need easily at stores where you could get premade patches. The biggest advantage of using an iron on patch is that you can spend all the time you wish to in doing them but should spend very little time affixing them.
You’ve got to have your materials available before you begin making your patch. But before you get your materials think of the style of the patch that you’d like to make. When you have the design made to size it is important to sketch or trace exactly the same on to the fabric. Make sure that you don’t embroider the design onto the cloth without the hoop so the executed pattern turns out flat. Now put a tear away backing fabric on the wrong side of the patch and fasten the embroidery ring into position so the design is taut. You can even use some backing spray to mend your backing paper in place.
You can now begin embroidering your iron on patch. Ensure that your thread is not longer than two feet at some point so that you can embroider easily and don’t need to bother with unwanted tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design making sure that you set about each length of the thread from the back of the design in order for the knots or extra lengths don’t appear in front of the pattern.
Upon having completed embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and remove the backing paper by tearing it away lightly. Take a little iron on sticky paper and cut it to the same size of your patch. Now place your patch facedown upon an ironing board and set the iron on adhesive patch glue side down on your patch. Have a fresh section of cloth or paper towel on top of the sheet. Put your iron on to the low configuration and iron the adhesive on to the patch. It’s also possible to utilize the silk setting in your iron. The paper towel or rag will make sure that not one of the glue gets ensnared in your iron.
Your embroidered iron on patches is going to be ready to work with as soon as you complete this step. Now all you need to carry out is peel off the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, place it where you wish to place it and iron it tightly into position. Iron the cloth back to front in order for the adhesive gets appropriately activated and retains the patch in place.
