Usually when we want to use an embroidery badge we visit the store and try our luck. If you find that you are never capable of finding something you want at these stores or intend to make something which is custom-made and different then you can readily make these embroidery badges in your own home. All you will be needing is a dose of creativity and imagination.
An embroidery badge is mostly used when we want to customize our clothes in ways that we can easily be viewed as a part of a group. So whether it be your garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you could make your own logo and badge in your own home. You’ll need a few supplies dogsecurity for example a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive as well as some tracing paper.
Begin your patch making beginning with zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportions so remember that your pattern isn’t too busy. You may have some words along with the pattern to denote the motto of the group or do away with the words and get only a beautiful pattern.
When you have selected the pattern you should transfer that onto paper. Ensure that you keep the border thick as the border will serve as the frame of your badge. Color the drawing out in the colors that you like to make use of in the final badge. Once you are pleased with your design trace it on a tracing paper first and then transfer this tracing on the cloth. Be sure that the color of your cloth is of the background that you like.
Once you have completed this step you will need to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is readily accessible at all embroidery stores in a good many types. You can get the wash away papers that wash off easily and 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 throughout the pattern ensuring that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This can help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It also helps greatly if you have a comprehensive design traced to the cloth depicting the stitches that you’d like to work with.
Now you may get set and start embroidering your embroidery badge. Be sure that you use a higher density of thread in making the border as this would be the frame for the badge. Upon having completed the full embroidery get rid of the badge from the frame and cut it out leaving a little seam space. After having cut the badge from the big cloth you must carefully reduce the extra seam as closely as is possible on the badge. You may then either stick the badge directly to the garment of your choice or can put an iron on adhesive at the back of the badge and also have it ready for use.
