How to make an embroidery badge from home

Usually after we want to use an embroidery badge we head to the store and check out 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 different then you can easily make these embroidery badges at home. What you will need is a dose of creativity and imagination.

An embroidery badge is generally used once we want to customize our clothes in a way that we can easily be viewed as a part of an organization. So be it 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 like 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 by first zeroing in to the pattern and design of the badge. Normally badges are small in size so remember that your pattern isn’t too busy. It’s possible to have some words along with the pattern to denote the motto of your group or get rid of the words and get only a beautiful pattern.

After you have selected the pattern you must transfer that on to paper. Be 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 would like to utilize in the final badge. If you are happy with your design trace it on a tracing paper first after which transfer this tracing out on the cloth. Make certain that the colour of the cloth is of the background that you would like.

If 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 many types. There can be the wash away papers that wash off easily and then there are tear away ones which you can tear off once you are ready with your design. After affixing the backing paper secure an embroidery hoop throughout the pattern ensuring that the pattern is in the center all of the time. This will help you in embroidering easily and conveniently without worrying about breaking needles or uneven stitching. It can also help greatly if you’ve got a detailed design traced to the cloth depicting the stitches that you would like to utilize.

You can now get set and start embroidering your embroidery badge. Be sure that you use a higher density of thread to create the border simply because this would be the frame for the badge. When you have completed the full embroidery get rid of the badge from the frame and cut it out leaving a little seam space. After you have cut the badge from the big cloth you’ve got to carefully cut down any additional seam as closely as possible on the badge. You may then either stick the badge directly to the garment which you decide on or can put an iron on adhesive on the back of the badge and also have it ready for use.
