Steps to making an embroidery badge at your home

Usually when we want to use an embroidery badge we visit the store and try our luck. If you think you are never able to find something you want at these stores or need to make something which is tailored and unique then you could conveniently make these embroidery badges at your home. What you need to have is a little amount of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is mostly used when we want to customize our clothes in ways that we can be viewed as a part of an organization. So whether it’s a garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your personal logo and badge from home. You’ll need a few supplies perhaps 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 on the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportion so take into account that your pattern isn’t too busy. You could have some words along with the pattern to denote the motto of the group or you can eliminate the words and have just a beautiful pattern.

Upon having selected the pattern you need to transfer that on paper. Be sure that you maintain the border thick as the border will serve as the frame of the badge. Color the drawing in the colors that you would like to use in the final badge. If you are happy with your design trace it on a tracing paper first and then transfer this tracing out on the cloth. Ensure that the color of your cloth is of the background that you would like.

When you have completed this step you will need to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is handily obtainable at all embroidery stores in several types. You can get the wash away papers that wash off easily and then there are tear away ones which you can tear off once you’re ready with your design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop round the pattern being sure that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This should help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It may also help greatly for those who have an in depth design traced to the cloth depicting the stitches that you want to use.

Now you may get set and commence embroidering your embroidery badge. Ensure that you make use of a higher density of thread to make the border because this is the frame for the badge. When you have completed the full embroidery take away the badge from your frame and cut it out leaving a small seam space. After you have cut the badge from the big cloth you must carefully cut down the extra seam as closely as possible on the badge. You can then either stick the badge straight 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.
