Tutorial

Choose an appealing piece of embroidery. Recently I bought a hot water bottle that came with this adorable cover. My partner loves squirrels so I decided to turn it into a patch for him.

If needed, use a seam ripper to separate your piece of embroidery from its place of origin.

Draw a border around the embroidery. I used a protractor to create a smooth curve.

Cut along your marked line.

Pin the embroidery to interfacing and cut out a matching shape.

Iron the fusible interfacing to the back of the embroidery.

I used my serger to create a border around my patch. If you don’t have a serger you can use the zig zag stitch on your sewing machine.

Now you have a custom patch. Next up is attaching it to your chosen textile object. Patches look great on clothing or bags.

This patch seemed perfect for the back of my partner’s fleece jacket. Pin your patch into place. Sew with a straight stitch and then use a zig zag stitch to attach it more firmly.

After your patch is attached, trim loose threads and then admire your work. Craft on!
