The steps to making an embroidery badge at your home

Most of the times whenever we could do with an embroidery badge we go to the store and try our luck. If you find that you are not able to find something you want at these stores or want to make something that is custom-made and different then you can readily make these embroidery badges at your home. What you will be needing may be a bit of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is usually used if we want to customize our clothes such that we can be seen as an element of a group. So whether it be a garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your very own logo and badge in your own home. You’ll need a few supplies perhaps 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 dimensions so do not forget that your pattern isn’t too busy. You could have some words in addition to the pattern to denote the motto of your group or eliminate the words and have just a beautiful pattern.

Once you’ve selected the pattern you should transfer that on to paper. Make sure that you maintain the border thick given that the border will serve as the frame of the badge. Color the drawing out in the colors that you would like to utilize in the final badge. If you are satisfied with your design trace it on a tracing paper first then transfer this tracing on the cloth. Make certain that the hue of your cloth is of the background you want.

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 available 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 which you could 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 the time. This enables you to in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It can also help greatly if you have a detailed design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches that you want to use.

You can now get set and start embroidering your embroidery badge. Ensure that you use a higher density of thread to create the border simply because this will be the frame for the badge. When you have completed the whole embroidery remove the badge from your frame and cut it out leaving a tiny seam space. After having cut the badge from the big cloth you’ve got to carefully cut down the excess seam as closely as is possible to the badge. You can then either stick the badge directly to the garment of your choice or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and get it ready for usage.
