Steps to making an embroidery badge from home

Most of the times if we could do with an embroidery badge we head to the store and check out our luck. If you feel that you are never capable of finding something you want at these stores or need to make something which is customized and unique then you can definitely conveniently make these embroidery badges from home. The only thing you will be needing may be a amount of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is usually used once we want to customize our clothes in ways that we can be viewed as an element of an organization. So whether it is your garden club. Boy Scout team, hiking club etc, you can make your own logo and badge from home. You’ll need a few supplies possibly a medium to heavy cotton cloth, embroidery threads, scissors, backing paper and iron on adhesive and a few tracing paper.

Begin your patch making by first zeroing in on the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in proportions so do not forget that your pattern isn’t too busy. You can have some words in addition to the pattern to denote the motto of the group or get rid of the words and have simply a beautiful pattern.

Once you’ve selected the pattern you need to transfer that onto paper. Be sure that you keep 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 make use of in the final badge. If you are happy with your design trace it on a tracing paper first and then transfer this tracing on the cloth. Be sure that the colour of your 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 readily accessible at all embroidery stores in a lot of types. There can be the wash away papers that wash off easily and there are tear away ones which you could tear off once you are ready with the design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop surrounding the pattern being sure that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This will help in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It may also help greatly if you’ve got a detailed design traced on the cloth depicting the stitches that you’d like to use.

You can now get set and begin embroidering your embroidery badge. Ensure that you make use of a higher density of thread to make the border as this would be the frame for your badge. When you have completed the total embroidery remove the badge from your frame and cut it out leaving a small seam space. After you have cut the badge from your big cloth you need to carefully reduce the extra seam as closely as is possible on the badge. You can then either stick the badge right to the garment of your preference or can put an iron on adhesive at the back of the badge and have it ready to be used.
