The biggest selling point of using an iron on patch is you can invest all the time you would like to in doing them but need to spend very little time attaching them.

You have got to have your supplies set up before you start creating your patch. But before you'll get your materials think of the design of the patch that you want to create. Once you have the design made to size it's important to sketch or trace exactly the same to the fabric. Be sure that you don't embroider the design and style on the cloth without the hoop in order that the executed pattern comes out flat. Now put a tear away backing fabric on the wrong side of the patch and fix the embroidery ring into position to ensure the design is tight. You may even use some backing spray to fix your backing paper in position.

Now you can start out embroidering your iron on patch. Ensure that your thread is not longer than two feet at some point for you to embroider conveniently and don't need to bother with useless tangles and knots. Now embroider along the design making sure that you begin every length of the thread from the back of the pattern in order for the knots or extra lengths don't show up in the front of the design.
When you have finished embroidering your patch take it out of the hoop and remove the backing paper by tearing it off lightly. Try taking a little iron on adhesive paper and cut it to the same size of your patch. Now put your patch facedown on an ironing board and place the iron on adhesive patch glue side down on your patch. Get a clean piece of cloth or paper towel over the sheet. Set your iron on the low configuration and iron the adhesive to the patch. You can even utilize the silk setting in your iron. The paper towel or rag will ensure that not one of the glue gets attached in your iron.

Your embroidered iron on patches could be set to make use of as soon as you accomplish this step. Now all that you need to carry out is peel the paper backing the adhesive behind the patch, put it where you wish to put it and iron it securely in place. Iron the textile back to front so that the adhesive gets properly activated and retains the patch in place.
