Most of the times when we want to use an embroidery badge we go to the store and try 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 perhaps you can conveniently make these embroidery badges in your own home. What you silent collar will be needing may be a bit of creativity and imagination.
An embroidery badge is mostly used when we wish to customize our clothes in a way that we can be viewed as a part of a group. So whether it’s your garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your personal logo and badge from home. You’ll need a few supplies 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 starting with zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportions so take into account that your pattern isn’t too busy. You could have some words with the pattern to denote the motto of your group or get rid of the words and have only a beautiful pattern.
Once you’ve selected the pattern you should transfer that onto paper. Make sure that you keep the border thick since the border will serve as the frame of the badge. Color the drawing out in the colors that you want to utilize in the final badge. When you are satisfied with your design trace it on a tracing paper first after which transfer this tracing on the cloth. Make certain that the hue of your cloth is of the background that you want.
Once you have completed this step you have got 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’ll find the wash away papers that wash off easily and then there are tear away ones which you could 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 the time. This should help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It also helps greatly for those who have an in depth design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches which you want to utilize.
Now you may get set and start embroidering your embroidery badge. Be sure that you work with a higher density of thread to create the border simply because this is the frame for your badge. After you have completed the total embroidery remove the badge from your frame and cut it out leaving a tiny seam space. After you have cut the badge from your big cloth you have got to carefully cut down any additional seam as closely as you possibly can to the badge. You can then either stick the badge directly to the garment that you choose or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and have it ready for use.
