Making patches can be tough if you don’t know how to sew, but there are many other ways you can make your design come to life. Because they are becoming popular every day, everyone would like to have their own at some point. Clothing companies are implementing them, so it doesn’t give you much room to improvise, but there will always be jackets without any print where you can put your design.
It also matters on which type of jacket you would like to have it on because some materials are bad for remodeling. Denim or leather jackets are most used for patching. Choosing the spot and the type is the most important thing because once everything is in place, you can’t reverse it or it will be damaged. There are many cool patches for jackets available on the internet, but people today tend to use Gucci’s snake or tiger the most.
How to Make One?
For the start, you will need an embroidery hoop, embroidery cotton, cloth, and a needle. If you don’t have cloth, you can also use any thick fabric, and all jeans, for example, will work perfectly fine. So, you start out by either drawing or printing out your design, make sure it has big broad outlines, so you can see it through the cloth.
Place it in your embroidery hoop, and pull on every side until it is nice and tight, then get your design and trace your outlines onto the cloth. After that, you are ready to stitch. Choose your color and start at the top of your design doing horizontal stitches all the way to the bottom. Make sure to spare out any other colored parts.
Once you have finished, split your extra string into two and secure everything with a few knots. You should repeat this process for other colors also. In the end, you should get black cotton and trace every line in your design, but not the outline.
Next step is to cut out the design but leave someplace around it. If you want to be secure and prevent any falling apart, use glue and place on the edges of your design. After that, you can cut the rest of the cloth but leave 2 to 3 millimeters for the outline.
