Steps to make an embroidery badge in your own home

Frequently whenever we wish to use an embroidery badge we visit the store and try our luck. If you think that you are not capable of finding something that you want at these stores or want to make something that is tailored and unique then you can definitely conveniently make these embroidery badges at your home. What you will need may be a dose of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is generally used whenever we want to customize our clothes in ways that we can be seen as a part of an organization. So be it your garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you could make your own personal logo and badge at home. You’ll need a few supplies such as a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive and a few tracing paper.

Begin your patch making starting with zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportion so keep in mind that your pattern isn’t too busy. You may have some words in addition to the pattern to denote the motto of your group or you can get rid of the words and get only a beautiful pattern.

Once you’ve selected the pattern you must transfer that on paper. Make 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 work with in the final badge. When you are content with your design trace it on a tracing paper first and then transfer this tracing on the cloth. Be sure that the hue of the cloth is of the background that you would like.

Once you have completed this step you will have to fix some backing paper on the back of your pattern. This backing paper is easily accessible at all embroidery stores in a lot of types. You can find the wash away papers that wash off easily and there are tear away ones which you can tear off when you are 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 enables you to in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It may also help greatly for people with an in depth design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches that you want to use.

You can now get set and commence embroidering your embroidery badge. Be sure that you use a higher density of thread to make the border simply because this is the frame for the badge. Once you’ve completed the entire embroidery take away the badge from the frame and cut it out leaving a tiny seam space. After having cut the badge from the big cloth you will have to carefully cut out the excess seam as closely as is possible to the badge. Then you can either stick the badge straight to the garment of your choosing or can put an iron on adhesive at the back of the badge and have it ready to be used.
