You will have to have your materials available before you start creating your patch. But before you will get your resources think about the design and style of the patch that you want to produce. After you have the design made to size you need to sketch or trace the same to the material. Ensure that you don’t embroider the design and style onto the cloth without the hoop so that the completed pattern comes out flat. Now place a tear away backing sheet on the wrong side of the patch and fix the embroidery ring in place in order for the design is tight. You can even apply certain backing spray to mend your backing paper into position.

 

Now you may start off embroidering your iron on patch. Be sure that your thread is not longer than two feet at one time so that you can embroider readily and don’t need to worry about useless tangles and knots. Now embroider along the design ensuring that you begin each length of the thread from the back of the style so the knots or extra lengths don’t emerge in the front of the structure.
When you have completed embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and take away the backing paper by tearing it away delicately. Try taking a little iron on sticky paper and cut it to the similar size of your patch. Now set up your patch with their face down upon an ironing board and place the iron on sticky patch glue side down on your patch. Take a fresh item of cloth or paper towel over the sheet. Set your iron on the low setting and iron the adhesive to the patch. You can even use the silk setting in your iron. The paper towel or rag will ensure that not one of the glue gets stuck to your iron.

Your embroidered iron on patches will be ready to utilize once you accomplish this step. Now all that you need to carry out is peel the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, place it where you want to put it and iron it tightly in position. Iron the textile back to front in order that the adhesive gets properly activated and retains the patch in place.
