Fasten a hoop around the pattern after making sure that the pattern is in the centre of the hoop and get to work embroidering.

Use a higher density of thread when making borders inside your patch as that will make your patch look as if it is sitting inside of a frame. Then get to embroider the remainder of the patch.

You can even use a contrasting color thread with regards to the variety of look you ought 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 offer an established look to your stitching. Secure the patch firmly into position and take off the extra thread and you are done sewing on your patch!
