You can create professional-quality embroidered patches and emblems! There are several quality materials available.
So, what is the best fabric for making your own embroidered patches? What colors does the fabric come in? Listen in as Deborah Jones shares about the best fabric and colors!
The Poly Patch Twill is a smooth 100% polyester. It is permanently adhered to a stable nonwoven backing which is the key for long-lasting washable and dry-cleanable patches. There are 3 bundles of colors – Brights, Athletic, and Uniform with 8 sheets in each bundle sized 9” x 24” each.
You can also purchase Poly Patch Twill Fabric Sheets. The individual sheet size is 13.5″ x 36″. If you find you are using a few colors of the bundles, then just purchase the individual sheets next time.
The next important material for professional patches is the Exquisite Poly Patch Twill Companion Thread. Exquisite Polyester 40 wt. thread is an affordable, high-quality polyester embroidery thread that provides the same brilliant sheen as rayon and is colorfast to withstand fading from ultraviolet light and industrial laundering. The thread comes in 3 bundles of colors – Brights, Athletic, and Uniform, which matches the Poly Patch Twill.
Another item that isn’t maybe necessary, but certainly very helpful is the Spray Tent. It is a great place to use for spraying adhesive spray on your patches or projects. The spray tent pops open when removed from its bag. We recommend placing your items face-down on a layer of paper to avoid excess accumulation of spray adhesive in your tent. After spraying, allow any excess adhesive to dry before storing.
