Steps to making an embroidery badge in your house

Frequently after we want to use an embroidery badge we head to the store and check out our luck. If you think that you are never able to find something you want at these stores or intend to make something that is tailored and different then you can readily make these embroidery badges from home. All that you will be needing is a amount of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is usually used whenever we like to customize our clothes in a way that we can easily be seen as an element of an organization. So whether it is a garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your very own logo and badge from home. You will need a few supplies perhaps a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive as well as 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 can have some words in addition to the pattern to denote the motto of your group or eliminate the words and have just a beautiful pattern.

Upon having selected the pattern you should transfer that on to paper. Be sure that you keep the border thick given that the border will serve as the frame of the badge. Color the drawing out in the colors that you want to work with in the final badge. When you’re content with your design trace it on a tracing paper first after which transfer this tracing on the cloth. Ensure that the color of your cloth is of the background you want.

Once you have completed this step you’ve got to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is readily available at all embroidery stores in a lot of types. You can get the wash away papers that wash off easily and there are tear away ones that you can tear off once you are ready with the design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop around the pattern ensuring that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This will help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It also helps greatly for those who have a detailed design traced to the cloth depicting the stitches that you’d like to use.

Now you may get set and commence embroidering your embroidery badge. Be sure that you use a higher density of thread in making the border as this is the frame for your badge. After you have completed the whole embroidery remove the badge from the frame and cut it out leaving a small seam space. After having cut the badge from your big cloth you’ve got to carefully cut down the excess seam as closely as is possible on the badge. You may then either stick the badge right to the garment of your choice or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and have it ready for use.
