You may as well make patches with themes to be put together to look just like a collage. Getting a little creative is all it requires.

To begin making your sew on patch, have the design ready on paper in greater detail. Draw out the stitches that you will be using and fill in the drawing with the colors that you’d like to work with on the patch to obtain a clear concept of your vision. Now use a tracing paper and trace out this complete pattern on the cloth you will be using. Once that is done fix some backing paper on the back of the design to make certain the pattern carries a smooth and uniform finish. Fasten a hoop round the pattern after ensuring that the pattern is in the middle of the hoop and get to work embroidering.

Use a higher density of thread when making borders in your patch as that can make your patch look as if it’s sitting inside of a frame. Then get to embroider the remainder patch. After you have completed embroidering cut down the patch leaving some seam space. This extra seam will probably be used when you’re sewing the patch in place.

Now that your sew on patch is ready, all you should do is get ready with a needle and thread or perhaps a sewing machine to sew the patch in position. The first task to do this is to fasten the patch in position with pins so that it doesn’t shift when you’re sewing it on. Now thread your needle picking a thread of the color of the patch. You may also use a contrasting color thread depending on the type of look you wish to give your patch. Now sew all along the perimeter of the patch using small straight stitches. Keep your handiwork as neat as you can to grant a qualified look to your stitching. Secure the patch firmly into position and cut off any additional thread and you are done sewing on your patch!
