Usually whenever we wish to use an embroidery badge we visit the store and try our luck. If you think you are never capable of finding something you want at these stores or want to make something that is customized and different then you can certainly conveniently make these embroidery badges at your home. The only thing you will be needing is a little bit of creativity and imagination.
An embroidery badge is mostly used once we wish to customize our clothes such that we will be viewed as an element of a group. So spit out collar whether it is a garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your very own logo and badge in your own home. You’ll need a few supplies for example a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive and some tracing paper.
Begin your patch making beginning with zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in dimensions so keep in mind that your pattern isn’t too busy. You could have some words along with the pattern to denote the motto of your group or you can eliminate the words and have simply a beautiful pattern.
After you have selected the pattern you have to transfer that on to paper. It is important to retain the border thick given that the border will serve as the frame of your badge. Color the drawing out in the colors you want to work with in the final badge. Once you’re content with your design trace it on a tracing paper first then transfer this tracing out on the cloth. Guarantee that the colour of your cloth is of the background that you want.
If you have completed this step you need to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is easily available at all embroidery stores in a lot of 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 the design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop around the pattern ensuring that the pattern is in the center at all times. This should help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It may also help greatly for people with a detailed design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches that you would like to use.
You can now get set and start embroidering your embroidery badge. Make sure that you work with a higher density of thread to make the border because this is the frame for the badge. Once you have completed the total embroidery remove the badge from the frame and cut it out leaving a tiny seam space. After having cut the badge from your big cloth you’ve got to carefully cut down the excess seam as closely as you possibly can to the badge. Then you can either stick the badge right to the garment which you decide on or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and also have it ready to be used.
