Embroidery Patches

An embroidered patch, also known as a cloth badge, is a piece of embroidery which is created by using a fabric backing and thread. High-speed, computerized machines have led to mass production.There are several ways on how to embellish a patch on a fabric.

There are various methods of affixing them to the fabric surface. Embroidered patches can be attached with a pin, sewn on, or affixed with more modern methods such as iron-on, dryer heat-activated adhesive, and Velcro backing.

We have a variety of styles of embroidery patches, such as applique embroidery patches; flocking embroidery patches; toothbrush embroidery patches; chenille embroidery patches; sequins embroidery /Bead embroidery patches; 3D embroidery patches; tassel embroidery patches; rope embroidery patches; hollow three-dimensional embroidery patches; chain embroidery patches.

2.1 What is a patch embroidery?

Patch embroidery refers to the technique of creating embroidered designs on fabric patches that can be attached to clothing, bags, hats, or other textiles. These patches are often made from a durable fabric base, such as cotton twill or polyester, onto which the embroidery design is stitched using specialized embroidery machines or by hand.

The process of patch embroidery typically involves the following steps:

  • Design Creation:

The first step in patch embroidery is designing the artwork or logo that will be embroidered onto the patch. This design can be created digitally using graphic design software or drawn by hand.

  • Digitization:

Once the design is finalized, it needs to be digitized to convert it into a format that can be read by an embroidery machine. This involves breaking down the design into individual stitches and specifying the colors and stitch types to be used.

  • Hooping:

The fabric patch is hooped securely in an embroidery hoop or frame to keep it taut and stable during the embroidery process. This ensures that the stitches are uniform and the design is embroidered accurately.

  • Embroidery:

The hooped fabric is then placed on an embroidery machine, where the digitized design is stitched onto the patch using various embroidery techniques, such as satin stitch, running stitch, or fill stitch. The machine carefully follows the design’s pattern, layering stitches to create intricate details and vibrant colors.

  • Finishing:

After the embroidery is complete, any excess threads are trimmed, and the patch may be heat-sealed or backed with adhesive or Velcro for easy attachment to clothing or accessories.

2.2 How do you make embroidered patches?

Hand Embroidery Method:

  • Gather Materials:

You’ll need embroidery floss in various colors, a fabric base for the patches (such as cotton twill), embroidery needles, embroidery hoops, scissors, and a design to embroider.

  • Design Transfer:

Transfer your design onto the fabric using a washable fabric marker or transfer paper. Ensure the design fits within the dimensions of your patch.

  • Secure Fabric in Hoop:

Place the fabric in an embroidery hoop, pulling it taut. This helps keep the fabric stable while you embroider.

  • Embroider Design:

Use various embroidery stitches (such as satin stitch, running stitch, or backstitch) to embroider your design onto the fabric. Follow the design lines carefully for accuracy.

  • Add Details:

Layer stitches to add depth and detail to your design. You can use different colors and textures of embroidery floss to create shading and highlights.

  • Finish Backing:

Once the design is complete, finish the back of the patch by securing any loose threads and optionally attaching a backing fabric or fusible interfacing for stability.

  • Trim:

Carefully trim around the embroidered design, leaving a border of fabric around the edges to prevent fraying.

  • Attach Patch:

Sew or glue a backing material (such as felt or iron-on adhesive) to the back of the patch to provide stability and facilitate attachment to clothing or accessories.

Machine Embroidery Method:

  • Digitize Design:

Create or obtain a digital embroidery design file in a compatible format (such as .pes or .dst) suitable for your embroidery machine.

  • Prepare Fabric:

Hoop a piece of fabric stabilizer and your fabric base in the embroidery hoop, ensuring it’s taut and secure.

  • Load Design:

Load the digitized design file into your embroidery machine and thread it with the appropriate embroidery thread colors.

  • Embroider Design:

Start the embroidery machine and allow it to embroider the design onto the fabric following the programmed stitching sequence.

  • Trim and Finish:

Once the embroidery is complete, remove the fabric from the hoop and carefully trim any excess stabilizer and threads. Optionally, apply a backing material or fusible interfacing to the back of the patch for stability.

  • Attach Patch:

Sew or apply an iron-on adhesive to the back of the patch to facilitate attachment to clothing or accessories.

2.3 What stabilizer to use when embroidering patches?

When embroidering patches, it’s essential to use stabilizer to support the fabric and maintain the integrity of the embroidery design, especially when using an embroidery machine. The type of stabilizer you choose depends on factors such as the fabric you’re embroidering on, the density of the design, and personal preference. Here are some common stabilizers used for embroidering patches:

  • Cutaway Stabilizer:

Cutaway stabilizer is a durable stabilizer that remains permanently attached to the fabric after embroidery. It provides excellent support for dense or intricate designs and is suitable for fabrics that tend to stretch or distort during embroidery, such as knits or stretchy materials.

  • Tearaway Stabilizer:

Tearaway stabilizer is a lightweight stabilizer that tears away easily after embroidery is complete. It is suitable for embroidering on stable fabrics that do not require as much support, such as cotton or denim. Tearaway stabilizer is ideal for patches that will not be subject to excessive wear or laundering.

  • Water-Soluble Stabilizer (Topper):

Water-soluble stabilizer, also known as a topper, is a thin, transparent stabilizer that dissolves in water. It is often used on top of the fabric to prevent stitches from sinking into the fabric’s pile or texture. Water-soluble stabilizer is particularly useful when embroidering on plush or textured fabrics, such as towels or fleece.

  • Fusible Stabilizer (Backing):

Fusible stabilizer, also known as backing, has a fusible adhesive coating on one side that adheres to the back of the fabric when heat is applied. It provides stability during embroidery and can be left in place or trimmed away after embroidery is complete. Fusible stabilizer is suitable for lightweight fabrics or patches that require additional stability.

  • Adhesive Spray:

Adhesive spray is a temporary stabilizer that can be sprayed onto the back of the fabric to hold it in place during embroidery. It provides temporary stability without leaving residue on the fabric and can be easily removed after embroidery is complete.

When choosing a stabilizer for embroidering patches, consider the fabric type, design complexity, and desired finish of the patches. Experimenting with different stabilizers and adjusting embroidery settings can help achieve optimal results for your embroidered patches.

2.4 Do iron-on embroidery patches stay on?

Iron-on embroidery patches can stay on garments or fabrics quite securely if applied correctly. However, their longevity depends on several factors:

  • Fabric Type:

Iron-on patches adhere best to fabrics with a smooth and flat surface, such as cotton, denim, or canvas. Fabrics with textures or loose weaves may not provide a strong enough bond for the adhesive to grip onto.

  • Application Method:

Proper application is crucial for ensuring the patch stays on. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, including preheating the iron to the recommended temperature, applying even pressure, and holding the iron in place for the specified duration.

  • Heat and Pressure:

The adhesive on iron-on patches activates with heat and pressure. Ensure that you apply enough heat and pressure evenly across the entire patch, paying extra attention to the edges and corners.

  • Washing and Care:

Iron-on patches can withstand regular washing and drying if properly applied. However, to prolong their lifespan, it’s recommended to turn the garment inside out before washing and to avoid using hot water or high heat settings in the dryer.

  • Additional Measures:

For added security, you can stitch around the edges of the patch after ironing it on. This extra step helps reinforce the bond between the patch and the fabric, especially for patches that will be subjected to frequent washing or heavy use.

While iron-on patches can provide a secure bond, they may not be as permanent as sew-on patches, especially if subjected to extreme conditions or frequent laundering. It’s also important to periodically check the patches for any signs of lifting or peeling and reapply them if necessary.
