I have embroidered patches and applied them using fabric glue. Also, look on badge application on the internet. There is one I ran across when I googled awhile back.

Start with https://www.dalcoathletic.com/

The letters are cut twill and they get a zig zag stitch around the outside. You will need to specify you want the sew file for the letters. If you want 2 color letters then ask for Kiss Cut, it is much easier. They will come together and you will sew it down and then heat press.

You can also look at https://twillusa.com/ They have a similar product.

You can buy blank sheets or pre-cut patches from embroidery supply vendor like Allstich Blank patches or Enmart Myenmart blank emblems patches. Or use heat sensitive tackle twill fabric from Stalhs Twill-applique fabric material or Gunold Twill fabric or Colman Twill Material. Heat press the patch then reinforce with zig zag or satin stitch around the edges.

Or use heavy polyester fabric. I get away using it for applique then satin stitch on the target fabric.

Attached is an example. Iit is not exactly what you want but my point is you can use heavy fabric.

If you want a patch with clean satin stitch border watch this video: Gunold embroidered patch
