How to Embroider on Blank Patches

Embroidery Supplies Needed:

Step 1

Hoop a piece of StickyStitch Peel & Stick Stabilizer. Once it's hooped, score the wax paper and peel it off to reveal the sticky stabilizer underneath.

Step 2

Choose your Pre-Made Blank Patch (in this example we used a 4" square patch). On your embroidery machine, stitch the outline of the patch on the StickyStitch Peel & Stick Stabilizer.

Step 3

Take your patch and place it over the outline you just embroidered. This will center the patch and make sure its straight.

Step 4

Embroider your design on the patch. We recommend using a size 11 or 12 sharp point needle.

Step 5

When done, remove the patch from the stabilizer and you now have a completed sew in patch. To heat seal the back and create an iron on patch, move on to step 6.

Step 6

Take a piece of Fuse-N-Bond Heat Seal Film and cut it out so it's slightly smaller than your patch.

Step 7

With the wax paper facing up, use an iron with a temperature of 260 degrees and press and hold for about 4 seconds. Wait for the fuse-n-bond and patch to cool.

Step 8

Once cool, slowly pull off the corner of the wax paper. If the fuse-n-bond comes up with the wax paper, you either did not use enough heat and pressure, or you did not give it enough time to cool.

Step 9

Congratulations, you now have a professional looking patch that can be ironed onto any garment.
