You can aquire most of the items that you will need quickly at stores where you could purchase ready to use patches. The most important benefit of utilising an iron on patch is that you could invest all the time you need to in creating them but should spend a short amount of time attaching them.

You have got to have your items set up just before you start creating your patch. But before you get your resources consider the style and design of the patch that you’d like to create. Upon having the design made to size you must sketch or trace the same on to the material. Make sure that you don’t embroider the style into the cloth without having the hoop so that the executed pattern turns out flat. Now put a tear away backing sheet on the wrong side of the patch and connect the embroidery hoop in position to ensure the design is taut. It’s also possible to use some backing spray to amend your backing paper in place.

Now you can start off embroidering your iron on patch. Be sure that your thread is no longer than two feet at one time so you can embroider easily and don’t have to worry about unneeded tangles and knots. Now embroider across the design ensuring that you start every length of the thread from the back of the pattern so that the knots or extra lengths don’t emerge at the front of the pattern.

Once you have accomplished embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and remove the backing paper by tearing it away gently. Try taking some iron on sticky paper and cut it to the same size of your patch. Now set up your patch face down on 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. Set up your iron on to the low configuration and iron the adhesive on the patch. It’s also possible to use the silk setting in your iron. The paper towel or rag will guarantee that none of the glue gets stuck to your iron.

Now all you need to do is peel the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, put it where you choose to place it and iron it securely in position. Iron the fabric inside out in order for the adhesive gets appropriately activated and keeps the patch in place.
